1. Experts from Egyptian CERT In Uganda. Initiated by Albert Mucunguzi

Experts From Egyptian CERT In Uganda To Facilitate Information Security Training


Flowers

“Sponsored by NITA, a team of Senior Information Security experts from the Egyptian CERT are in Uganda to train Government Agencies running critical IT infrastructure.”

Frowns

“Someone was talking about USA spying on other countries and we are letting Egyptian get involved. Recently someone from one of the north African countries hacked the judiciary website.”

“Our young techies might not be up to the task. Another angle to this is those young techies might just turn into hackers.”

Conclusion/ Remarks

“With all due respect to our partnership and lead agencies, you can no longer ignore who you work with. And this is not to say that there is anything wrong with Egyptians coming to train us, rather, we cannot simply brush away any concern that may touch our national security, no matter how small or seemingly irrelevant.”

“I think that you set a thief to catch a thief <hackers>. The best employee you can have is one who can show you the wrongs in your system.”
