Cyber security has become a significant issue affecting Zimbabwe, as individuals and businesses increasingly rely on technology for communication, financial transactions, and handling sensitive information. With the rise of cybercrime, it is crucial for citizens to be aware of the risks and take necessary precautions to protect themselves and their data.
Through the collaboration with Digital Vocano, the Ministry of ICT Postal and Courier Services will provide access to gaming portals that offer interactive and educational games focusing on cyber security awareness. These games will cover topics such as password protection, safe internet browsing, phishing attacks, data privacy, and more. By gamifying the learning process, the Ministry aims to make cyber security education accessible, enjoyable, and memorable for the public.
The gaming portals will offer a range of benefits to the public. Firstly, they provide an interactive and engaging platform for individuals to learn about cyber security. By using gamification techniques, users can develop vital skills and knowledge to protect themselves against cyber threats. Moreover, these gaming portals will be freely available, enabling easy access to a wide audience, including students, professionals, and the general public.
As part of the Ministry's commitment to promoting cyber security awareness, these gaming portals will be showcased at this year's Zimbabwe Agricultural Show, which will be held from 28 August to 2 September. Visitors to the event can participate in the interactive gaming experience at the Ministry of ICT Postal and Courier Services stand. This will allow attendees to not only discover the significance of cyber security but also engage directly with the Ministry's representatives to address any queries or concerns they may have.
The Ministry of ICT Postal and Courier Services and Digital Vocano partnership represents a significant step forward in raising cyber security awareness in Zimbabwe. Through the innovative approach of using gaming portals, the collaboration aims to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the digital landscape safely.
