ACCRA – PROMINENT Ghana cyber security expert, Albert Antwi-Boasiako, is scheduled to address the Global Commission on Internet Governance scheduled for United Kingdom beginning Friday.

Scheduled for Wilton Park, West Sussex in the United Kingdom at the invitation of Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, it is the commission’s first meeting for the year.

Antwi-Boasiako, the Founder and Principal Consultant of cyber security firm, e-Crime Bureau Limited, will address the meeting chaired by former Swedish Prime Minister, Carl Bildt.

Antwi-Boasiako is expected to speak on the evolution of cyber needs in West Africa.

“This gives a clear indication of Ghana’s direct involvement in global discussions on cyber governance and internet security issues and the country’s keen interest in ensuring that emerging developments are addressed locally,” he said ahead of the event slated for Friday and Saturday.

He said Ghana had made some successes in these areas.

“But we need to act more proactively in dealing with the risks.”

The Global Commission on Internet Governance seeks to inform concrete policy recommendations for the future of internet governance and is made of leading figures in internet evolution including Ghana’s internet pioneer and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Information Technology Agency (Ghana), Dr Nii Narku Quaynor.
