Says ICT Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak
Bangladesh plans to train 1,000 cybersecurity experts over the next five years to fortify the country’s digital infrastructure, said ICT Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak on Tuesday.
“They will keep both Bangladesh and the rest of the world safe from cyber attacks,” he said at the award distribution ceremony of the National Cyber Drill 2020 at ICT Tower in the capital.
In future, Bangladesh will be branded as the cybersecurity service provider hub.
The ICT Division is working to ensure digital security to both public and private entities, including banks, healthcare institutions and civil aviation, Palak added.
More than 1,000 individuals from various government and non-government financial institutions, regulatory bodies, law enforcement agencies, universities, and private companies participated in the competition, both individually and in teams.
Team SiliconBits took first place, while Infinity Bytes was second, and Heimdall stood third.
