The Director General of ANTIC, Prof Ebot Ebot Enaw, has enjoined the first batch of information system (I.S) security auditors accredited by ANTIC to comply with the code of conduct guiding the exercise of the activity in Cameroon in a bid to foster the resilience of the country’s cyberspace. Prof Ebot Ebot Enaw made the appeal Tuesday March 09, 2021 in Yaounde at the opening of a four-day training seminar organized by ANTIC to get some seven accredited security audit firms acquainted with the legal framework, standards, professional ethics as well as policies and procedures developed by ANTIC which they are expected to comply with while carrying out IS security audits.
The training workshop came on the heels of a rigorous selection process in which ANTIC accredited seven firms found qualified to carry out information system security audit in Cameroon. It was keeping with the provisions of the law regulating the security audit activity, which requires ANTIC to train accredited security auditors at the start of their five-year mandate on various components of I.S security audit.
At the end of their training, the accredited security auditors would be expected to effectively provide technical support to organisations through security audits which play an important role in the security chain of their information systems, Prof Ebot Ebot Enaw noted.
It should be noted that as from 2013 to date, the National Agency for Information and Communication Technologies has carried out two hundred and ninety-three security audit missions in both public and private organisations, which have significantly contributed to the security of Cameroon’s national cyberspace.
