The Asian and Pacific Training Centre for ICT for Development (APCICT), in cooperation with the Development Academy of the Philippines, is organizing the Philippines Training of Trainers on Frontier ICTs and Cybersecurity for Sustainable Development. This training will be held from the 11th to 14th April 2023 in Manila, Philippines.
The four-day event aims to expand the pool of resource persons in the country who can provide support to central and local government officials on safely leveraging frontier technologies for sustainable development. As frontier ICTs are increasingly leveraged for realizing the Sustainable Development Goals, it is crucial for countries to develop guiding frameworks in the adoption of these technologies in their national development efforts.
The training programme will look into the fundamental concepts of frontier ICTs, the challenges and risks associated with the application of frontier ICTs, and the importance of security and privacy measures to protect against security threats.
