NITA-U sensitises Road Fund staff on ICTs and information security
NITA-U has sensitised staff of Uganda Road Fund on cyber laws, NITA-U Act, information security and IT standards. The sensitisation workshop aimed at creating awareness on the laws that govern the Electronic Signatures, Electronic Transactions and Computer Misuse Acts.
The sensitisation also sheds light on the role of Information Security in an organisation and outines measures to be taken to ensure an organisation is security compliant. The Information Security directorate in NITA-U is in place to coordinate efforts to remediate security alerts and respond to information security related incidents and threats.
NITA-U says the on-going awareness campaign targets government agencies and has been carried out in Ministries like Ministry of Energy, UBA, NBS, UNCCI, UHRC, UIA, UNCST, NWSC, NDA, NCHE, URSB, USE, BOU and universities and several other institutions.
