The National Institute of Technology, Hyderabad: A NITA-U Cyber Security Campaign, on the lines of the recently launched ‘Cybersecurity: Digital Threats and Responsibilities’ (CDTR) campaign, has been declared by the Department of Information Technology, Hyderabad. It is the first cyber security campaign launched by the Department and seeks to educate the students of NITA-U about the need for cyber security.

The first two subjects ‘Cyber Security Awareness’ and ‘Cyber Threats’ form the basis for the Cyber security awareness training offered by the Department through the Cybersecurity Awareness workshop, held in a joint session with the Department of Computer Science, Hyderabad, on December 2, 2016. The department also holds several workshops for the students on various Cyber security related subjects for the same year.

The ‘Cyber Security Awareness’ session is designed for the students of NITA-U and offers an insight into the Cyber Security area. The students are given an opportunity to learn about a few cyber security related concepts and topics through live demonstration and other ways, such as internet class. The students are also encouraged to make use of the ‘Digital Security’ module of the Cyber Security Awareness workshop which provides them a better understanding of the digital threats they are facing.

The second module related to the Cyber Security awareness is part of the ‘Cyber Threats’ topic that is designed for the students who have graduated from NITA-U.

RCIP Uganda – Cyber Security Awareness Campaign

With regards to the article published in the August, 2018 edition of Computer Security, I wish to draw the attention of the readership to several critical problems with the approach adopted to address the challenges in the management of RCIP Ugandans in Uganda.

First, I wish to reiterate my concerns regarding the lack of basic competency of the management staff involved in the development and management of the RCIP Uganda, which is mainly due to some technical inadequacies and the lack of appropriate training to the people involved.

There is also an absence of an in-house and well-established professional team to develop the management structure of the RCIP Uganda, which therefore cannot be relied upon to deliver on the vision for the RCIP Uganda.

Furthermore, while the RCIP Uganda is being developed by the Ugandan government, the management of the Uganda Private Sector is not sufficiently competent to undertake and carry out the work in the management and development of the Uganda Private Sector.

The management of the Uganda Private Sector is also not adequately skilled to take on the management of the whole RCIP Uganda including administration, management and development of the RCIP Ugandans.

If the RCIP Uganda is to be sustained, with the commitment of the Ugandan government, it will need adequate staff and management capability at all levels of the RCIP Uganda’s administration.

Secondly, with regards to the lack of commitment of the leadership of the RCIP Uganda in the management of the RCIP Uganda, there is also a lack of commitment towards the development and implementation of the RCIP Uganda.

While the leadership of the RCIP Uganda is not competent to give full commitment and support for the RCIP Uganda, the management of the RCIP Uganda has never carried out any review of the work in the RCIP Uganda.

Moreover, there is also a lack of an effective implementation of the RCIP Uganda, which will require the leadership of the leadership of the Ugandans to carry out the full implementation of the RCIP Uganda in the Uganda Private Sector.

The lack of basic competency in the management of the RCIP Uganda is largely due to the lack of appropriate training to the people who are engaged in the development and management of the RCIP Uganda.

NITA-U – Campaign in Uganda against Cyber-Related Threats

A new campaign, called NITA-U (NITA) against targeted cyber-attacks on business and private entities in Uganda, has been launched by the National Internet Governance Authority (NIGA) along with other African internet monitoring organizations.

The campaign was launched in line with a plan called NITA-U-CYBER (NITA-U Cyber Campaign) which was launched by NIGA in 2009 to address the security threat of online threats. NIGA is now a member of the African Union (AU).

The NIGA-U-CYBER campaign includes Uganda’s National Cyber Security Forum (NCSF), Internet Watch Africa (IAWF), cyber-security experts, and cyber patrol organization, the Network Investigative and Tactical Group.

The NIGA-U-CYBER Campaign’s initial target is major commercial cyber-attacks, both on government and private entities. The campaign will target both cyber-attackers and cyber-attack perpetrators.

The NIGA-U Campaign is not a single one-or multi-faceted campaign. Instead, we have a series of one or more targeted cyber-attackers in the same territory or in different parts of the same territory. We believe that this will bring more security to the local government and private information organizations in the country.

The NIGA-U Campaign seeks to raise awareness among the public, especially the private sector, about cyber-security threats and the need to take precautions to protect themselves against the threats. A campaign is planned to run for at least two seasons and be implemented with the support of local government agencies and the private sector.

It is envisaged that Phase 1 will run for 14 days, with the implementation phase running for a period of two years. Phase 2 will be implemented in six months, Phase 3 will run for a period of two years and Phase 4 in four months.

NITA-U: Cyber Security Awareness Campaign “Be Safe Online”

The National Intelligence Telecommunications Activity (NITA) is an agency of the Intelligence Community of the U. Department of Defense (DoD). NITA is assigned four major missions: intelligence; national security; communications, and cyber. The NITA mission sets are detailed in the NITA Director’s Report entitled “Director’s Annual Report to Congress on the Department of Defense Intelligence Community Computer Systems,” dated June 15, 2007. The following is a description of the NITA’s mission, and the role of the agency in the DoD cyber strategy.

The NITA’s mission is to improve information sharing and communication in support of the Department of Defense. NITA is part of the DoD Intelligence Community. The NITA Director’s Annual Report to Congress on the Department of Defense Intelligence Community Computer Systems states, “The Intelligence Community is the single most important source of data within the intelligence community and a reliable source of intelligence on the state of the world and policy. Through the Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community provides information from its resources, as well as the United States, to other agencies and the international community.

The NITA mission is to improve the sharing of information with our international allies during the United States’ support to Iraq and Afghanistan. The NITA is responsible for ensuring that the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, intelligence communities worldwide, and the Department of Justice have robust information sharing capabilities. In addition, NITA is responsible for developing and implementing the National Intelligence Telecommunications Awareness Campaign (NITAC) to ensure that the DoD, federal, state, and local entities have enhanced information sharing capabilities when communicating with the public and private sectors. The NITAC seeks to improve intelligence sharing among agencies, including the Department of Defense, and the federal government’s efforts to communicate with the public and private sector.

The NITA is an autonomous component of the Intelligence Community under DoD Order 11210. DoD Order 11210.
