Cybersecurity threats, fake news and impersonation by hackers have become a great worry for corporate bodies and individuals dealing in data processes across the globe.

In Ghana cybercrime has become a security concern especially since fraudsters popularly known as ‘sakawa boys’ use the internet to target unsuspecting victims.

The task of protecting data and other sensitive information continues to be more critical for industry players and anybody owning at least, an email account.

The situation is reaching an alarming proportion as hackers are advancing their operations almost every day.

In view of this, Spearhead Networks, a local ICT security training and next-generation threat driven solutions provider, has partnered with one of the world's fastest-growing IT security companies, Thycotic to provide cybersecurity solutions for its clients across Africa.
