ICT firm moves to curb cyber attacks


IT firm Sparc Systems and the ICT Association of Malawi have emphasised the need for organisations to protect themselves against cyber attacks.

This was said on Wednesday in Blantyre during a day-long training for cyber security demonstrations in Blantyre.

Sparc Systems Managing Director Wisely Phiri said the training, hosted in partnership with another ICT firm, Oracle, was aimed at enhancing people’s preparedness for cyber-attacks and data loss.


He said enhanced cyber security requires concerted efforts.

“We need to urgently detect any attack on our national infrastructure. For this to happen, we require collaboration between industry players and security companies.

“The government and private sector players need to align to strengthen the cyber security posture of our country,” he said.


The company demonstrated Database Firewall, Database Vault and Zero Data Loss operations.

ICT Association of Malawi President Clarence Gama expressed satisfaction with the technology demonstrated, describing it as key to protection of cyberspace.

“While technology has brought efficiency, it also means that our data is exposed worldwide, especially where we do not have right protection of the data. Therefore, this is an important innovation in the protection of cyber security,” Gama said.
