The state has to innovate data security measures that will protect citizens from any form of cyberbullying.

This follows shocking relegations that cybersecurity threats have increased. These concerns appear to have raised an alarm about data protection, privacy and online security.

Clients continue to give away personal data when accessing different services yet have no surety if their information details will be kept secure. For instance, a data breach at a government agency can put top secrets into the hands of the state’s enemies.
