Terrorists may disrupt 2019 polls – NITDA DG

Director General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) Isa Pantami has said the 2019 general elections may be disrupted if adequate information technology security measures are not put in place.

He raised the alarm at the 10th annual conference organised by Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), Abuja Chapter, yesterday.

Dr. Pantami said terrorists may disrupt the national elections by hacking into the voter register database of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“If proper IT security measures are not put in place, terrorists may disrupt the national elections by hacking into the INEC voter register database; they can disrupt the banking system by hacking into and taking over the Bank Verification Number (BVN) platform.

“They can critically disrupt the national economy by cyber-jacking the Treasury Single Account (TSA) software, and so on.”

“This section specifies what security measures should be in place while deploying IT systems in Public Institutions,” he added.
