The cyber space is anticipated to be the one of the most high risk/high accountability careers because of the challenges that digitization has brought forward. She believes that the cyber space brings great opportunity for the global learning landscape through problem solving not only to protect companies and their assets but also to protect people and their identities.

Projects At Geekulcha Since 2013

  • Geekulcha Annual Hackathon

    Putting Skills Into Real Use - This Hackathon seeks to build capacity in terms of new skills and also help the teams understand and outline policy and regulations in the process. Whether it's Civic Tech, business/enterprise, communal based solutions, GKHack challenges local techies and innovators to build with sustainability in mind. 

  • SafeHack

    SafeHack is the biggest security hackathon in Africa targeting 100 participants in 2020. All the SafeHack Hackathon editions have had a strong software element but we encourage teams to also work on hardware projects.

    The intensity and enthusiasm required to deliver a competitive hack usually means that getting the solution to work in a short amount of time is challenge enough.

  • Public Service Innovation Conference

    The CPSI annually hosts a conference where decision-makers and practitioners are exposed to innovative practices and where experts provide guidence towards building an innovative public sector.
