With computer aided theft now becoming rampant in the country, a private
hacking forensics consulting company has opened a laboratory to train Ugandans
in cyber security.
According to Mr Mustapha Mugisa, one of the consultants at Summit Consulting,
their forensics laboratory will give Ugandans world class specialised training
that otherwise would have required them to go and get it from the US.
They have partnered with the International Council of Electronic Commerce
Consultants, the owners and creators of the famous Certified Ethical hacker and
Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator.
This follows reports that there is still very little knowledge about computer
security among computer users in Uganda, a loophole hackers have taken
advantage of to hack into government websites, data bases, banks, mobile
telecommunication companies as well as individuals to steal vital information
that has led to theft of colossal sums of money.
