Dr. Lassina ZERBO, Executive Secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

The development and use of digital technologies offer Africa an unprecedented opportunity to develop its economy, create jobs and improve the living conditions of its population. However, new challenges are arising in parallel with this growth, and the increase in the use of technology is accompanied by growing needs for cyber security. Indeed, one of the risks, which requires special attention, is cybercrime, which makes the continent’s information systems and IT infrastructure more vulnerable. It is therefore essential to ensure that African states and their citizens are protected.
