On November 28, 2017, Gavin Dennis and Walt Brown (eGov Jamaica) appeared as guests on RootsFM’s Cyberzone where they contributed to furthering the discussion on good cybersecurity habits and Jamaica’s upcoming National Identification System (NIDS)

In the first section of the discussion, Walt Brown shared insights into the NIDS system and reassured the listening public about the security measures the government will take to protect citizens data. In the latter part of the discussion, I shared general cybersecurity tips people can use to protect themselves online.

Security is such a big concern, we care so much about it, I would love to see more persons going out and pursuing it, studying, being more curious, taking courses…
