By Tiyanjane Mambucha MANA

Government has said promotion of massive adoption of Information Telecommunication Technologies (ICTs) should be preceded by an assurance to ICT users of the safety and overall security of these technologies.

Minister of Information and Digitization, Moses Kunkuyu, said this on Monday when he opened the ITU Regional Cyber Drill for Africa at Umodzi Park in Lilongwe.

He said Malawi undertook a Cyber Security Maturity Model Assessment from which five dimensions are being pursued to address security threats in the cyber space.

Regional Director for Africa International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Rachael Inne, said Africa alone experienced 1,845 cyber attacks only in 2022 which were higher than the world’s attacks.

Taking his turn, Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority Board Chairperson, Dr. Stanley Khaila, said as a region, Africa needs to shift away from the national boundary mindset and take the modern approach of collaboration and coordination on issues pertaining to cyber security.

The cyber drill is being hosted in partnership with the Malawi Computer Emergency Response Team, the United Nations Office of Counter Terrorism, Forum for Incidence Response Security Team and Africa.
