Cassava Technologies company Liquid C2 has opened its Zambian Cyber Security Fusion Centre (CSFC) in Lusaka, as the company scales up its security business across Africa.
The Zambian CSFC is the third in the matrix of security centres to be launched by Liquid C2 on the continent. The other two security centres are located in Johannesburg, South Africa and Nairobi, Kenya.
According to the company, the centres are designed to ‘allow the organisation an increasing oversight and understanding of the cyber threats its customers face in real-time’.
It says: “Liquid C2 relies on the data gathered from all the CFSCs and manages every element of cyber protection using this intelligence to build a mesh to identify, mitigate and protect businesses across the continent.”
In Zambia, the company says, the new CSFC is a beacon that raises awareness about the vital need for cyber security for all businesses.
The centre, Liquid C2 says, also stands as a key pillar in Zambia's economic growth plans as it continues its digital transformation journey.
David Behr, CEO, Liquid C2, comments: "Zambia's ongoing digital transformation has seen businesses increase their online service adoption to serve the growing cyber-population, meaning Zambian businesses are becoming increasingly high-risk targets for cyber-attacks.
“Our Cyber Security Fusion Centre will provide businesses with timeous responses to mitigate these attacks successfully, ensuring that their business is prepared to face current and even future threats."
Mark Townsend, CEO, Liquid Intelligent Technologies, Zambia, says: “The centre will offer comprehensive cyber security services, including threat intelligence, detection, and incident response, customised to meet the requirements of businesses in Zambia. By providing these services, Liquid C2 aims to enable businesses of all sizes to concentrate on their growth without worrying about the escalating cyber security risks."
