During its 22nd meeting, chaired by PS Dr. Raymond Omollo, the National Computer and Cybercrimes Coordination Committee (NC4) made significant decisions to enhance cybersecurity in the country.

Firstly, the committee resolved to issue a public advisory to critical infrastructure sectors, recommending the use of digital certificates from licensed organizations within Kenya for data and communication encryption. This measure aims to ensure local jurisdiction and prosecution of cybercrime cases, such as the recent Worldcoin incident, where data collected from Kenya was processed abroad.

Additionally, the meeting addressed Kenya’s proposed accession to the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime. This move is intended to improve information sharing and mutual legal assistance in cybercrime cases, recognizing their international nature.
