DEMANDS ON THE CYBER SECURITY FIELD ARE RAPIDLY GROWING

Due to increasing demands in the field of cyber security, there is a need for not only fresh methods to curb cybercrimes but also for fresh intellectual engagement. Among a new generation of people who have been taking advantage of the growth of the IT industry to pursue careers in cyber security is Yusuph Kileo – a Tanzanian cyber-security and digital forensics expert.

Kileo was among the key organizer of the cyber security conference held at CLA21 conference hall on March 14th this year where he explained that there is still a lot to be done to improve the challenges facing nations in this area. The conference was supported by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies, and Wolfpack Information Risk centered on an analysis of current Cybercrimes and National Cyber security challenges along with an Overview of cyber security activities in ITU.
Cybercrime is on the rise not only because there is an increased number of ICT users,but also because people discover what seems like “easy money” through online theft. Some even go further by hacking websites and systems in order to access classified information – or even just for amusement. There have been many cases of this type in the last year, Craig Rosewarne, the SANS director (EMEA), and Wolfpack System Risk’s Managing Director, discussed these issues during the conference.
Martin Euchner (ITU Telecommunication Standardization Bureau Advisor) highlighted the outstanding effort to fight cybercrimes including the implementation of the Child Online Protection (COP) project whose goal is to keep children safe while they surf the internet. ITU has been working hard on uniting Nations around the fight against cybercrime as they believe individual nations cannot fight alone. Euchner underlined the fact that cybercrime has no geographical border, no boundaries and tremendous destructive power.
Kileo called upon people to develop an interest in the field of cyber security as the need for human resources is great. Kileo offered the example of how developed countries had begun building cyber solders to fight Cyber wars.  - SOURCE - GN MAGAZINE.
