Cyber-crime to cost Ghana $100m in 2018
An information security expert had earlier told Citi News that Ghanaian businesses stand to lose 100 million dollars from cyber-crime in 2018, if pragmatic measures are not put in place to minimize it.
According to a Managing Partner at cybersecurity firm, Delta 3 International, Del Aden, the incidence of cyber-crime in Ghana will continue to rise unless businesses put effective counter measures in place.
“Businesses in Ghana stand to lose nearly 100 million dollars to cyber-crime. That's why everyone needs to sit up and implement effective measures of counter cyber-crime,” he warned.
