The Bangladesh Bank has topped the Cyber Drill 2021 while bKash secured the second position in an event organised for enhancing the cyber incident handling capacity of the financial institutions.
A total of 38 financial institutions attended the Cyber Drill 2021 organised by Bangladesh Government's e-Government Computer Incident Response Team (BGD e-GOV CIRT) recently.
The toppers of the drill were selected based on the technological, infrastructural, analytical, and precautionary measures taken to handle cyber-attacks.
Also, the use of advanced technology and the necessity to organise more training on cyber security were discussed during the day-long event.
Mohammad Azmal Huda, chief product and technology officer of bKash, said: "To ensure cyber security, we continuously invest in this sector and emphasise developing technological know-how. This kind of cyber drill helps us evaluate our technological capability and also paves the way to achieving new areas of development."
Organised by BGD e-Gov CIRT, Bangladesh Computer Council and the Digital Security Agency coordinated the drill for the second time.
