It seems that ITU plans to host the 1st meeting of substance on the illicit use of ICT. Tekedia wants to make a suggestion on the venue since that has not been decided. Our recommendation: Lagos. There is no better place to discuss this than Nigeria. Why? Our guys are not listening; maybe if this is brought closer home, they can change!
The First High-Level Meeting aims to identify best practices to address issues and challenges related to the illicit use of ICTs, and share information on recent activities being undertaken by ITU as well as other entities to build cybersecurity capacity. This Meeting will serve as a platform to launch a dynamic process based on a multistakeholder approach for mitigating the complexity of risks which could result from illicit use of ICTs.
