Information and Communication University (ICU) Cyber Security and Forensic President, Obrian Mwanza, has urged government to introduce cyber security programmes in various universities.
Mwanza in an interview on Monday with Zambia Monitor said doing so would assist in reducing cyber security threats in the country by educating consumers on the vice.
He said with the increased cyber related crimes, people needed to have vast knowledge on how this vice could be dealt with.
He indicated that the potential risks associated with cyber-attacks had amplified with the increasing digitalisation of businesses and government services.
Mwanza, therefore, called on government to ensure a robust cyber security strategy in universities in order to help maintain a continuity of operations and minimise the potential for costly interruptions.
“It will only be right if we have a lot of trained individuals for the science who can be experts in the field and enthusiast of how impactful cyber security is as of today,” he said.
