‘HELP MANAGE RISKS AND IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY’- CSA DIRECTOR GENERAL CHARGES NEWLY INAUGURATED AUDIT COMMITTEE
The Director-General of the Cyber Security Authority (CSA), Dr. Albert Antwi-Boasiako has charged the newly inaugurated Audit Committee of the Authority to help manage risks, improve productivity, and speed up the Audit processes in the Authority in conformity with section 83 of the Public Financial Management Act 2016, (Act 921). According to Dr. Antwi-Boasiako, timely reporting on audit-related issues can coexist with adherence to due diligence. As a result, systems must run progressively without hindrances disguised as bureaucratic measures in the public sector.
The Director-General was speaking at the inauguration of the Audit Committee of the Cyber Security Authority in Accra. The inauguration of the six-member Audit Committee is to enable the Authority to meet its obligations under Section 83 of the Public Financial Management Act, 2016 (Act 921) and Section 22 of the Cybersecurity Act 2020 (Act 1038).
Dr. Albert Antwi-Boasiako encouraged the newly inaugurated Committee to implement proper and strong internal control mechanisms and advise management on Finance, Governance and Risk policies that will aid the proactive operations of the Authority on Audit-related issues.
He urged them to ensure compliance with laws and regulations within the system and focus on making a difference to ensure that proper audit standards are complied with, rather than being a hindrance to reaching corporate objectives, as is often the case in public sectors.

- Dr. Eric Oduro Osae - Chairperson
- Prof. Boateng Onwona-Agyeman - Member
- Mr. Carl Amanoh Sackey - Member
