Introduction to organizational cybersecurity: vulnerabilities and risk mitigation strategies
Global Security & Architecture Section, OICT
Information & Communications Technology (ICT) is being leveraged by developing countries to become more effective in all areas of public service delivery such as education, identification, healthcare, communications, and others. While it is critical to adopt ICT rapidly for achieving faster socio-economic growth, it is equally critical to ensure the reliability and integrity of the underlying infrastructure and information systems. This talk provides an overview for people without a technology background of the vulnerabilities, threat landscape (e.g. types of actors, motivations, etc.) faced by public organizations operating in cyberspace as well as the methodologies to mitigate associated risks.
