As we bid farewell to 2023, it’s a moment of reflection for Cyber Divisions, a year that saw tremendous strides in our commitment to fostering cybersecurity awareness and education. Our organization’s mission has always been to make cybersecurity awareness and education accessible to 1.216 billion people in Africa by empowering individuals and communities through cybersecurity awareness and education, and this year has been no exception. One of our proudest achievements in 2023 was the introduction of our innovative program, Cyber Press, which played a pivotal role in reaching and educating thousands of people.
Cyber Press Monthly Booklets:
In an effort to make cybersecurity awareness and education accessible to everyone, Cyber Divisions launched Cyber Press, a program that published monthly booklets on various cybersecurity topics. These booklets were designed to be informative yet easy to understand, catering to individuals with varying levels of technical expertise. The best part? They were distributed for free in communities, schools, public libraries, and tech stores making cybersecurity awareness and education readily available to those who might not have had access otherwise. Over the course of the year, Cyber Press reached approximately 1000 people each month, creating a ripple effect of awareness within local neighborhoods.
Community Cybersecurity Awareness Events:
Beyond the pages of Cyber Press, Cyber Divisions took its commitment to cybersecurity awareness a step further by organizing free community events throughout the year. These events served as interactive platforms for individuals to learn about the latest cybersecurity threats, best practices for online safety, and ways to secure personal and professional digital assets. The response from the communities was overwhelming, with hundreds of participants actively engaging in discussions, workshops, and hands-on activities.
Partnership with Google Community Developer Groups:
In a strategic move to extend our reach and impact, Cyber Divisions forged a partnership with Google Community Developer Groups. This collaboration allowed us to tap into existing networks and leverage the expertise of the Google developer community to organize events that brought free cybersecurity awareness and education to underserved communities. These joint efforts proved to be immensely successful, with hundreds of individuals benefitting from the collective knowledge and resources shared during these events.
As we look back on 2023, Cyber Divisions is proud to have made significant strides in our mission to promote cybersecurity awareness and education. The combination of the Cyber Press program, community events, and strategic partnerships has allowed us to reach and empower thousands of individuals, contributing to a safer and more secure digital landscape for all. Looking ahead, we remain committed to expanding our initiatives, breaking down barriers to cybersecurity awareness and education, and continuing to make a positive impact on communities around the world. Thank you for joining us on this journey especially our partners Grab The Axe – Total Security Solutions, and here’s to a future where cybersecurity awareness and education is accessible to all!
