Kenya – Cyber Hygiene Posters
The strength of NGOs
In many countries, NGOs play a vital role in ensuring essential services to local communities. From healthcare assistance, water treatment and sanitation services, to electricity provision and micro-finance support. NGOs are key resources for local communities to access what critical civilian infrastructure offers.
The increase in cyberattacks targeting critical civilian infrastructure around the world, like the healthcare sector and water treatment systems, has put NGOs in a more vulnerable spot. While working to protect human security, dignity and equity of local populations, including granting their access to essential services and their livelihood, these NGOs are often ill-prepared to face cyberattacks. When attacked, large groups of people are left vulnerable.
To help people around the world to shield themselves from cyberattacks and contribute to cyberpeace, we work with local partners. Our collaboration with Kenyan agency Creative VMLY&R focused on NGOs working in healthcare and water sectors in Kenya.
How to help the helpers?
Our posters address the cybersecurity needs of the NGOs working in the field of healthcare and water facilities, in order to increase cyber awareness of their staff, and in doing so helping to better protect the vulnerable populations they serve.
Addressing the Most Common Cyber Threats
The posters cover five topics that represent the most common cyber threats and attack vectors: poor passwords, phishing emails, unsecure websites, social media and disinformation. Posters are available in English, French and Swahili. Go ahead, download the posters, print them, stick them on the wall, share them with your colleagues and friends. And if you’d like to reuse them for your organization or even modify them, we’d love to help you do that, just get in touch with us.
