As an objective to combat cybercrimes, Mauritius is hosting a debrief session from 22 to 24 November 2022, following the Africa Cyber Surge Operation which was arranged in Kigali.

The aim of this event organised by INTERPOL and AFRIPOL is to encourage idea-sharing and the exchange of best practices in relation to cybercrimes. The conference is being attended by people from 28 different nations, including Kenya, Eritrea, Ghana, and Gambia.

Mr. Doucouré, the Head of Information and Communication Technology of AFRIPOL emphasized that although the ICT industry on the African continent had enormous potential, cybercrime was on the rise owing to the increased use of the modern technologies that jeopardized the security of data and information.
