The GBB boss noted that it is fascinating to see how the evolution in the telecommunications sector has led to increased interconnectivity between machines and devices.
He said with additional 5G issuance by the federal government to telecom network operators, it is an opportunity to connect with over 200million people for efficiency in connectivity and improvement in the data protection and insulation of service consumers from cyber-attacks.
Professor Abubakar said partnering with a company like Moharram and its clients like KASPERSKY, who are global cybersecurity solutions providers, will restore confidence and boost the services rendered to customers by the Galaxy Backbone.

The meeting is also to assess the potentials in the Nigerian market in order to ensure the cybersecurity of the over 600 MDAs that are direct customers of Galaxy Backbone as basic cloud service provider.
According to the Agency, one of its core areas of focus where the organisation has expanded and strengthened over the years, is in its Network Communications Infrastructure that is capable of meeting the changing needs of its customers in the environment in which they find themselves.
Its state-of-the-art Network Monitoring & Management Centre helps manage and control the connectivity and unified communications experience of its customers within the public sector.
The main objectives of GBB’s current efforts are to; enhance the strengths of GBB in Service Delivery; and position GBB as a crucial partner to services providers in both the public and private sectors. With high-speed fibre optic cables being laid in over 20 states of the federation and more to be deployed in the other parts of the country, speed of connectivity will be significantly improved within a short time.
