Business Finland has commissioned a market study of the cybersecurity industry in Kenya. The objective is to provide Finnish cybersecurity companies with an understanding of the threats, key players, budgets and business opportunities in Kenya. Join our webinar where we present the findings of the study!

Kenya is among the leading African countries going through a rapid digital transformation in the public and private sectors to become a digital-first economy. The market is ripe for more competition as cybersecurity is in its infancy and there is the appetite to leapfrog to the latest technologies. Key growth sectors are investing heavily into cybersecurity and managed services providers are growing fast due to a lack of in-house skills and capacity.
