Kenya: A Rough Ride towards a Knowledge Economy

Jan 25 2015

click here for a pdf version of this article.

On January 17th, 2012 Kenyans woke up to news of desecration of a number of government websites. A hacker has taken liberty to expose the weaknesses in the security of government systems, reportedly after a short tutorial. The hacker, coming from Indonesia, later even thanked Kenyan technical news sources for effectively covering the story of the hack!

Soon the blogosphere was aflame with concerned, animated Kenyans and friends of Kenya as to how this would happen. They seemed even angrier considering the very basic nature of flaws that led to the security breaches. It is as if an untrained mechanic has been used to overhaul a car engine only for the engine to be fouled by the most amateur of mechanics.

This needs to be a wakeup call to all Kenyans, and especially those in leadership, to put in place solid processes, people and technology in defense of the motherland.

    First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I
    had a quick question which I\'d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    mind before writing. I\'ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!
