Abstract

Online criminal and terrorist activities impact society at individual, organizational and national levels. This makes cybersecurity risk a society risk, one in which cyber-attacks affect the whole community. As such a government led cybersecurity response is important, where government, private entities, and individuals each have a part to play. In this study online discussions on cybersecurity in Botswana were analysed to assess the cybersecurity risks and activity in the country. A public cyber threats register is not available in Botswana and organizations do not benefit from shared knowledge on cybersecurity threats and their mitigations in the country. As such Open Source Intelligence data is used to analyse the threats in Botswana. This study concluded that Botswana could benefit more from nation-wide data publicized by the government as this will help support industries that are most affected.
