Ransomware Attacks

BY ADMIN IN FUNCTIONS

Of late, a number of organisations world-wide have been crippled by different ransomware attacks, and Zimbabwe has not been spared. As the use of ICTs in business continues to grow in leaps and bounds, sadly the same can be said for global cyber crime. Businesses may ask; • What is ransomware • How does it work • Am I at risk as a business? • How can I ensure the cyber security of my business.

ICTs in Education and E-learning

BY ADMIN IN FUNCTIONS

In the latest Zimbabwe academic calendar, a bold move was initiated which brought to the fore the inaugural use of digital technology in all education sectors from nursery schools to higher tertiary learning institutions. In a mighty way a new dawn of the adoption of e-learning on a broader level therefore just established itself in Zimbabwe.

The evolvement of e-learning has mostly been in institutions of higher learning where universities have established learning portals which their students access online to download or view lecture notes, class notices, fees statements, link up with lecturers and in more developed cases, collaborate on school work among themselves.

However, it will be crucial to highlight that in Zimbabwe, e-learning is no longer only limited to tertiary institutions, but even Early Childhood Development pupils are now exposed to the use of computers at nursery school. E-Learning has opened a whole industry and created opportunities for business among entrepreneurs and technology enthusiasts.

Banking and Finance (Current Problems and Solutions)

BY ADMIN IN FUNCTIONS

Join us as we discuss the current problems in the Banking and Finance industry , "how can ICTs offer solutions and what solutions can be offered".

The current situation in the Zimbabwean finance and banking sectors is riddled with a number of consumer frustrations, anxieties, and uncertainties. These include:

Cash Shortages ; Delays and failure to transmit payments to other countries ; High transactions charges ; Electronic payments options coverage limited to Urban areas only.

The authorities are encouraging the use of bank instruments, plastic money, and electronic payments in order to ease the pressure on the cash demands.

Are these instruments working perfectly?
Are they accessible to all?
Are they catering for all scenarios that allow individuals and companies to transact seamlessly?
Do the consumers and general public understand what is going on in the background as they try to utilize these instruments?
