Cyber security is at the center of our priorities and I support and encourage DEVCHAMPION initiative which undertakes to connect young African cyber security talents with businesses and administrations to fight cybercrime.
I wish the participants good luck and above all success in their professional lives as cyber-defenders of Africa.
