We gave NCC award for enabling growth in other sectors—ISACA

More facts have emerged on why the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) recently honoured the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) with “Outstanding Partnership” award.

Business Hilights recalls that the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) is an international not-for-profit professional body with over 200 chapters globally. The Association is reputed for the development and use of information technology systems knowledge and practices to enhance efficiency in corporate governance structures.

In a statement, the Association said it was gratified by the support, collaboration and partnership with the Commission and the great strides the Commission has accomplished as the national regulatory authority for telecommunication in Nigeria.

Giving further insights on the reasons behind the corporate award, President of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Chapter of ISACA, Glory Idehen, referenced activities of the Commission as the regulator of the telecoms, a sector that has enabled growth in other sectors of the economy. Idehen said ISACA is particularly happy to be associated with NCC.

Responding on the awards, the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, who was represented by Abraham Oshadami, Head Information Technology at NCC, thanked ISACA for the award. Danbatta noted that as a leading public sector organisation regulating telecoms, NCC takes information technology governance as critical.

The EVC stated that it is just natural that NCC was able to relate warmly with ISACA which is also focused on information technology governance. The EVC expressed gladness that some staff of the Commission are also members of ISACA and hope that ISACA will continue to encourage professional capacity building among the nation’s workforce.
