Confidence StaveleyLeaders Africa 2022
Founder and Executive Director, CyberSafe Foundation
Confidence Staveley is the founder and executive director of CyberSafe Foundation, a non-governmental organization dedicated to improving inclusive and safe digital access in Africa. She believes that Africans – especially the most vulnerable – should not only have access to technology, but should also be equipped with cyber risk and mitigation strategies. Confidence recently facilitated CyberSafe's collaboration with the UK Government to implement a cybersecurity intervention in response to the heightened cyber attacks during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, Africa's first afro-beats cybersecurity awareness song was released, reaching over 10 million Nigerians with information about cybersecurity hygiene.
