Tenders are invited for Africa Cybersecurity Resource Centre for Financial Inclusion (ACRC)
The principal objectives of this project:
(i) To create an affordable shared platform for efficient cybersecurity monitoring (for cyberattacks detection). This will ensure that cybersecurity services will reach beyond tier I financial service providers and ultimately increase the safety of solutions provided particularly to vulnerable people. The projection is to have a new additional regional hub in East Africa with the key advantage of resources availed in close proximity and to strengthen the Senegal existing center who will cover all the West Africa region
(ii) To provide affordable individualized advisory services to organisations (procurement of security solutions, contracting, execution of security tests).
(iii) To support talent development in cybersecurity both at an academic and operational level (capacity building, skills development and retention as well as research, development and innovation) in a way that ensures the demand is met in a systemic and sustainable way.
