The VC also mentioned how the team was adamant about succeeding and reestablishing the institution’s online presence despite the recovery process taking many sleepless hours. He continued by saying that the recovery procedure illustrated how crucial it is to have a strong cybersecurity framework in place.

Prof. Kiplagat stated that the university is looking forward to a more extended partnership with Meta Inc, particularly in the area of training to boost their cyber security measures and increase their capacity to stop and mitigate future assaults.

“I want to make it clear that Kabarak University has not created any new account. Any account created in the name of Kabarak University is a pseudo account by cybercriminals aimed at tainting the name of the institution,” Prof Kiplagat told the Nation on phone.

 

“We have reached out to Facebook in an effort to recover the university’s account.We’ve forwarded this case to the concerned authorities and the action will be taken,” he further revealed without giving details.

 

The giant firm Meta has business operations in Kenya, but it doesn’t have a physical office, as its local employees work remotely.

 

The company owns Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, among other products and services.
