GHANA has established the country’s historical Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) to curb cybercrime.
The CERT, globally known as Computer Incident Response Team (CIRT) and its portal, scheduled for launch on Friday, is hailed as a certain and trusted way of safeguarding the country and its businesses from cyber wars or attacks.
The Minister of Communications would launch the CERT portal and a team to coordinate cyber incidences and assist in resolving future incidences within the public and the private sectors of the country.
The portal is developed by the National Information Technology Agency (NITA), the Ministry of Communications and other agencies.
However, noted that the coordinating centres of the CERT were yet to be established but would be hosted temporarily at the Ghana Multimedia Incubation Centre (GMIC), hopeful by the end of October, towards December this year, the CERT coordinating centres would be moved to the National Data Centre.
The leader of the ITU delegation, Sagar Mahendram, explained that the main purpose of the CERT was to defend cyber war, but it also creates awareness about cybercrime.
