Kenya and the United States have formed a partnership to fight cybercrime that has in recent months become a big threat to governments and private business around the world.

The deal was struck at a meeting between senior US State Department officials and Kenya’s ICT and Defence Cabinet secretaries in Nairobi last week.

The two countries agreed to collaborate in the area of Internet policy formulation and share information on cybercrime. 

The US government also committed to train 100 Kenyans on cybersecurity.
