C Whilst the 3R Technologie team has worked with companies of every shape and size, from SMEs to multinationals, the challenge they face is the level of maturity that cybersecurity has in African countries, primarily the French speaking ones. The importance increases by the day, yet many do not employ an Information Systems Security Officer and often have no budget at all for information system security. The problem is often a lack of understanding which leads to a refusal to create a role which deals with the difficulties of the present day. As a result, many organisations struggle to make strategic decisions that will benefit them in the long run. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to change their perspectives on this, however. The team at 3R Technologie has been driven by this dramatic shift. Research shows that ransomware and phishing attacks increased by 600%, requiring more teleworkers to support clients who were in an unprecedented situation. The new paradigm was completely unexpected, and the IT world was not ready to deal with the immediate challenges. The trust which many businesses placed in the talented team at 3R Technologie was crucial to the development of essential information security systems. One of the most important decisions over this period was to work alongside a business partner to create a Security Operation Centre. This has proven to be immensely popular with clients and has driven even more success for the firm. The services offered by the 3R Technologie team include IT solutions specifically tailored to their unique requirements, built on well-informed guidelines and wellbuilt and value-added information system services.
