The survey conducted jointly by the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) and the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), between February and May 2016 sought to assess the availability of ICT infrastructure and their applications in enterprises and public institutions, measure the usage of e-commerce in enterprises and availability of e-government services in public institutions. It also sought to establish the type of IT security measures enterprises had in place.

Deployment of IT security measures was found to be most common among large enterprises where 99.7 per cent of the entities reported having at least one form of measure. Antivirus, antispam-ware, computer passwords, regular backups of critical data, and firewalls ranked as the most common IT measures that enterprises had put in place to safeguard themselves from the risk of data loss.

According to the survey, 23.9 per cent of medium sized enterprises were aware of the National KE-CIRT/CC while 8.4 per cent of micro enterprises were aware of its existence or functions. The survey also established that most online crimes went unreported mainly due lack of knowledge of where to seek help from. 54.5 per cent and 48.1 per cent of micro and small enterprises respectively experienced online crime and did not report to any authority.

Comparatively, the study shows that a higher proportion of enterprises had Internet connectivity and intranet compared to public institutions with Local Area Network, cloud computing and presence of website more prevalent in the public institutions than in enterprises.
