THE NEED OF KNOWLEDGE SHARING & COLABORATION TO THE FIGHT AGAINST CYBERCRIMES

With the growing technology, there is a need for cybersecurity experts and ICT experts at large to keep on learning new things and updating themselves of the current technologies – Dr. Waudo urged during the opening of the conference I attended in "KENYA"

The Rapid changes of technology each day that comes along with new techniques used to commit cybercrimes should force us to do the best we can to share knowledge among us and collaborate for us to be able to fight cybercrimes.

Knowledge sharing facilitates both capacity building and awareness to update individuals on the current situation.  – The key to succession to the fight against cybercrimes. It was well explained to experts during the InfoSec Europe 2014 in "LONDON"


Knowledge sharing goes along with collaborations. I have said many times “Fighting cybercrime should not be a work of an individual alone” experts across nation and world at large should always think of the ways to extend collaborations for the best output.

We have witnessed the current initiatives "UK and US" took on the fight against cybercrimes. The initiatives we all predict will add impact. This example was seen before when European Union decided to form cybersecurity framework helping the
region on the fight against cybercrimes.

Two things I would kindly like to encourage each of the cybersecurity experts to keep in mind:



One – We should not sit and think that technology wait for us. Technology grows very rapidly and we all need to attend workshops, Conferences and other events for us to learn as much as we can in order to stay updated.

Two – We should always find a way to know each other across continents and collaborate by sharing knowledge and experiences that will help the fight against cybercrimes.

With these two (Knowledge sharing – Capacity building and collaboration) along with other initiatives will definitely make a journey of the fighting cybercrime a bit easier.

I will share one Example While in Kenya attending a conference, I learned of new cybercrimes that are not yet in my country and with that knowledge it’s become easy for me to know about it and get prepared before facing the same challenge.


Cybercrimes have no geographical borders, no boundaries and tremendous destructive power – "An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of cure”.
