The pan-African Internet Infrastructure Security Guidelines: aims, challenges and circumstances

With the intention of tackling rising cyber threats, members of the African Union have adopted the African Union Convention on Cyber Security and Personal Data Protection, which has led to the drafting of the Internet Infrastructure Security Guidelines for Africa. This set of guidelines aims to create a pan-African, multi-stakeholder approach to cyber security, taking into account the particular circumstances of African nations, such as the different levels of cyber security awareness. João Luís Traça and Pedro Marques Gaspar of Miranda Law Firm detail the approach of the guidelines and the challenges to improving cyber security across Africa.
