How state sovereignty has changed in the digital age
In the digital age we live in, the definition of state sovereignty has evolved to include telecommunications and citizen data. But are Afrikan governments lagging behind as many seem to be surrendering their sovereignty?
In recent years there’s been an increase in both the number of data breaches, the number of Afrikan government-related websites that have been hacked and defaced, as well as government-related websites that have been DDoS’d. This got me thinking, how ready are Afrikan countries (and the continent as a whole) for a cyberwar (aka World War III) which is most likely already underway?
I think you’ll agree with me that the world is changing and a fast pace and given that almost everything that a state works with is being digitized, this adds a new dimension as to what’s important to a state and what determines a state’s sovereignty.
