Liquid Cyber Security, a Cassava Technologies company, has launched the first of its matrix of Cyber Security Fusion Centres today, July 20, 2022, in Johannesburg, South Africa.

From espionage to critical infrastructure sabotage, combat innovation, and organised crime, Africa faces an increasing array of cyber threats. However, most African countries have yet to develop a national cybersecurity strategy.

Although South Africa lags in some aspects of cybersecurity, the government appears to be taking steps to address this issue. For one, the country is one of 28 worldwide with a cybersecurity policy.

David Behr, CEO of Liquid Cloud and Cyber Security, founded Liquid Cyber Security in 2020 in response to the alarming rate of cyber attacks. 

Consequently, businesses and governments in Africa will access Liquid’s network of Security Fusion Centres located in key markets. 

The company plans to respond to threats using a strategic, tactical, technical, and operational threat intelligence approach, allowing teams to make informed decisions while mitigating the threat for customers. 

These centres will provide threat intelligence and consolidate the existing Liquid Cloud Operations and Liquid Network Operation Centres, ensuring customers have comprehensive end-to-end security support across cyber security, cloud, and networks.

The company believes they will eliminate silos and improve threat visibility, resulting in greater collaboration across teams and increased cyber resilience. And with the combined offering of security advisory, managed service, and integrated cyber intelligence, businesses can stay ahead of cyber-attacks.

Behr stated that once fully operational, the centres will leverage their ability to track and predict threats across the continent, which will be enhanced by the capabilities of their international partners like Microsoft, ITC Secure, and Xcitium.
