Business sector and cyber crime

Date: September 10, 2007

The business community like the media should have celebrated the withdrawal of The Kenya Communications (Amendment) Bill, 2007 by Information Minister Mutahi Kagwe.

The Minister cited the need to introduce clauses to deal with cyber crime and protect the optical fibre cable as the reason for the withdrawal.

Most businesses and financial institutions in Kenya have now embraced Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and are highly dependent on computers for operations and accounting.

Automation is intended to give businesses a competitive edge in their industry but this is not always the case. High dependency on ICT comes with the attendant risks of electronic fraud, pilfering of data and computer components which can sometimes bring an entire enterprise to it knees.
