livestreamToday Friday July 3 2020 at 11:00 UTC the Internet Society Livestream Channel will transmit yesterday’s webinar ‘Cybersecurity in Africa: Rising for the new challenge‘. This is the 3rd in the African Internet Resilience series, organized jointly by the Internet Society and the African Union, in particular this time the African Union Commission Cybersecurity Expert Group (AUCSEG).

In the pandemic, as businesses and governments are increasingly relying on digital technologies, there is a corresponding growth in vulnerability to attacks, misinformation and fraud.
