Cyberterrorism, violent extremism top agenda @High Profile Panel

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Application Programme Interface (API) have concluded plans to host a High Profile Panel Discussion to discuss Kenya’s preparedness and overall strategy to insulate the 2017 general election against the threat of violent extremism and cybercrime, reports ITRealms.

Participants to the forum, slated for Monday, June 12 at the Hotel Intercontinental, ITRealms gathered would also identify early-warning indicators and undertake analysis of risk to Kenya’s stability before, during and after the 2017 election.
