  Building Global Cybersecurity   Zambia hosts first Cyber security drill
 

Datuk Mohd Noor Amin, Chairman of the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT), describes the vital steps countries can take to benefit from the world alliance against cybercrime.

It is impossible for a nation to deal with cyberthreats single-handedly. Given their borderless nature, these threats require a concerted regional and global effort to mitigate the risk by ensuring countries have in place sufficient defence and response mechanisms. At the national level, countries need to address cybersecurity readiness from a comprehensive perspective for adequate protection of national information. Moreover, governments have to ensure the measures they put in place provide protection from a wide range of constantly evolving cyber threats.

 

ZICTA DIGEST LAST week, the Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) on behalf of Government hosted the first-ever cyber drill for Africa which attracted 18 countries.

The cyber security which ran from September 29 to October 1, 2014 in Livingstone was organised in collaboration with the International Multilateral Partnership against Cyber Threats (IMPACT) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) – the UN Agency that oversees the Information Communication Technology sector in the global community.
