"African business owners flagged cybersecurity as the biggest threat to a successful operation, with 94% of companies in Africa and the Middle East experiencing a cyberattack in the past year. There are simply not enough skilled cybersecurity professionals available to properly plan, manage, integrate and optimize security devices, strategies and protocols. As a result, over the next five years, economic loss due to cybercrime is predicted to reach an unprecedented $5.2 trillion – almost the size of the economies of France, Italy and Spain combined" – World Economic Forum, Sep 2019.
