ITU sets up African regional group for ICT security standardization

A new Regional Group for Africa has been established within International Telecommunication  Union Study Group 17, the standardization expert group responsible for building confidence and security in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) reports DigitalSENSE Business News.

The Regional Groups within ITU-T Study Groups are expected to contribute to the inclusivity of the ITU-T standardization process. These groups highlight regional priorities for ITU-T standardization, assist in the coordination of regional contributions to the work of ITU-T, and offer a mechanism for standardization experts to convene meetings close to home.

The new ITU-T Study Group 17 Regional Group for Africa (SG17RG-AFR) provides a channel through which to encourage and organize Africa’s participation in ITU-T security standardization. 

The group will guide African contributions to ITU-T security work, conversely informing the region of key ITU-T decisions in the security field. It will assist the region in the implementation of ITU-T standards and organize technical tutorials to increase Africa’s resilience to security threats.

The study group 17 for the African region (SG17RG-AFR) DigitalSENSE Business News gathered would be overseen by a five-man team, led by its chairman, Mr. Michael Katundu, Communications Authority of Kenya, supported by three vice chairmen namely Mohamed M.
