Kenya CIRT Reports Substantial Increase in Cyber Threats in Q4 2020


The Kenya National KE-CIRT/CC reported that it detected 56,206,097 cyber threat events in the fourth quarter, between October and December 2020. This represented a 59.8% increase from the previous quarter which detected 35,173,937 events, with a notable rise in the presence of malware, DDoS/Botnet and web application attacks. Reasoning behind the substantial increase was attributed to the waning impact of the Covid-19 pandemic as the country begins its return to functional norms. The National KE-CIRT/CC issued 21,513 advisories, which represented a small decrease from the previous quarter.
