3T Solutions Consulting Releases Cybersecurity Research Study for West Africa


RIVERVIEW, Fla., July 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 3T Solutions Consulting announced the release of its 2017 cybersecurity research study for West Africa titled – "2017 West Africa Cyber-Security Indexing & Readiness Assessment: A regional report on cyber-security ranking, readiness, vulnerabilities and mitigating measures to improve awareness."

The report is born out of the need for a cooperative partnership between private-public sectors and international organizations to drive the issue of Cybersecurity to the forefront of national agendas in West Africa.

"3T Solutions Consulting wants to improve awareness and help the region to continue to pay attention to the daily occurrences of cyber threats. From our study, we anticipate an increase in the threat level due to the lack of holistic approach towards cybersecurity, lack of functional emergency response teams within the region, the proliferation of smart phones and connected devices and new ways cybercriminals are bypassing existing security investments…" said Mr. Joel Amao, CTO.

The key findings of the report include:

I. Technology alone cannot address the efforts to combat cyber-threats and attacks 
II. Risk management is a crucial component to addressing Cybersecurity without impacting the overall operations of organizations 
III. Although some industries, such as Banking and Fiance have made some progress in addressing security on their infrastructure, our findings indicate most of the institutions are still very susceptible to client-side vulnerabilities 

IV. Most laws in the countries involved in the study lack meaningful implementation to deter cybercriminals 
V. Cybercriminals are using the path of least resistance, thus bypassing security investments that organizations have made in their infrastructure 
VI. Lack of functional public emergency response team poses serious economic and national security issues 

3T Solutions Consulting extend our sincere gratitude to the over 300 respondents from West Africa that participated in the public survey, various thought leaders that we interviewed and the public and private organizations from Ghana, Nigeria, Gambia and Liberia that participated in the research.
