5TH NATIONAL CYBER SECURITY COMPETITION 

 Theme: Collaboration through Industry 4.0 Cyber Security Solutions 

  2019, Friday 3rd   October, Venue: Auditorium 1,  Time  :  0930- 1100            

The cyber space is not only confined to IT people. With technological advancements, everyone is now part and parcel of that connected world. It is on that note that cyber security is now everyone’s responsibility.  The Faculty of Computing and Informatics in collaboration with various industry partners has been hosting a series of Cyber security competitions mainly on the technical end. This year, the Faculty has opened up a new horizon and is welcoming all disciplines to partake in cyber security awareness, we encourage the NUST community to take advantage of this collaborative initiative to be onboard on cyber security issues.

This year, the Namibia National Cyber Security Competition (NNCSC)  events will be of immense benefit to all disciplines across board and will contribute to the progress and development of the security awareness in Namibia, as the country is a role model in adopting the latest trends in modern ICT infrastructure like Digital TV, 4G, WACS, to name but a few. We are convinced that these events is for the benefit of entire Namibian cyber space. It will also contribute especially towards supporting the country’s endeavours to become a knowledge-based economy envisioned through Vision 2030 and a digital nation as proposed in the Harambee Prosperity Plan.
