ITU is initially expected to train staff to execute the plan and manage the system for six months.
Mr Wangusi said the monitoring centre will be established under the Kenya Information Communication Act and be guided by an ITU national CIRT country readiness assessment report that was adopted during the 2010 East Africa Council Organisation (EACO) meeting.
ITU is supporting Kenya under the Global Cybersecurity Agenda aimed at enhancing confidence and security.
Countries that have established similar agencies to tackle cyber crime include Hungary, which went into full scale spying in 2005 ‘to protect critical government infrastructure’.
