African business are facing numerous cyber security challenges. Web application attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting pose significant risks, while distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks consistently disrupt services. Data breaches are a constant threat with grave financial and reputational consequences. Moreover, the increasing use of APIs introduces security vulnerabilities that require immediate attention.
