TRAINING ON INFORMATION SYSTEM SECURITY MANAGEMENT IN THE FINANCIAL SECTOR
The Bank of Tanzania Act, 2006 and the Banking and Financial Institutions Act, 2006 mandate the Bank of Tanzania (BOT) to license, regulate and supervise Banking Institutions in Tanzania. As a regulator, BOT is entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring a stable, sound, and safe banking sector and financial system at large. In discharging this responsibility, it is in the interest of BOT to ensure that the financial system operates with sound and safe controls that an organization needs to implement to ensure that it is sensibly protecting the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of assets from threats and vulnerabilities
It is along this background that the Bank of Tanzania Academy has organized a five-day course, which is intended to impart necessary skills to staff of banks and financial institutions on how to increase the security and safeness of their system and operation at large.
B. OBJECTIVE OF THE COURSE
At the end of the course, participants will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that will enable their institutions to understand the role they can play in helping to enhance and enforce the organizations’ security controls from understanding data protection requirements to being able to spot signs of attacks and responding accordingly. Also, practical security training helps employees to understand cyber hygiene, security risks that may be associated with their actions, and the ability to timely identify cyberattacks in their cyber environment and take appropriate actions to respond to those attacks.
