NITDA to train over 100 Penetration Testers



The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) will before end of this year, train some 100 Nigerians as Penetration Testers, reports ITRealms.

Penetration Tester, also known as ‘Ethical Hacker’ ITRealms gathered, probes for and exploits security vulnerabilities in web-based applications, networks and systems.

Confirming this at a one-day Penetration Testing Checklist Standards workshop by NiTDA, the Acting Director, Standard, Guidelines and Regulations at the agency, Mr. Lazarus Nikoti said that the training of Penetration Testers would happen sooner than expected.

This, he explained, is because it was adequately captured in the 2016 appropriation bill of the agency.

In addition, ITRealms reports that there are plans by NITDA to train yet another set of 1000 as part of its intervention strategies to indicate or further opportunities in the Penetration Testing industry.

The aforementioned trainings, ITRealms reports, would serve as Train-the-Trainers with focus on tertiary institutions to supply participants, to build their capacities.
