About seventy delegates from twenty-two countries who participated in the inaugural Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) in Accra-Ghana embarked on visits to cybersecurity establishments in Accra to acquaint themselves with their operations.

The tour took them to the National Communications Authority's (NCA) Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), the National CERT (CERT-GH) which is situated at the Cyber Security Authority, Oduma Solutions' CERT, and the National Information Technology Agency's (NITA) Security Operations Centre (SOC).

The visit was also designed to give the delegates a better understanding of the institutions' operations and how they monitor and respond to cybersecurity threats.

Stephen Cudjoe-Seshie, the Lead for the National CERT, introduced the team to the CSA's cybercrime reporting points of contacts, and indicated that CERT-GH was a member of the Forum for Incident Response Teams (FIRST).

Mr. Kwadwo Osafo Maafo, the acting Director (Cybersecurity Division) at the NCA, briefed the delegates on the activities of the NCA-CERT, which include incident management, research and development, analysis and forensics, and capacity building and development.

He stated that the NCA-CERT cooperates with the National CERT (CERT-GH), other government agencies, and other international monitoring feeds.

Mr. Abdul, the head of SOC at Oduma Solutions, took his turn and briefed the delegates on the various systems, solutions, and tools used by the company.

The head of the NITA SOC, Mr. Benjamin Quarcoo, noted that the SOC was formed to continuously monitor government digital platforms for safe and effective service delivery by proactively preventing, detecting, assessing, and responding to cybersecurity incidents.
