Malawi School of Government dates Blantyre on cyber security degree program

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Barely a week after Malawi School of Government (MSG), formerly Malawi Institute of Management (MIM) partnered with UK’s University of Central Lancashire on cyber security and networking degree program, the institution has gone flat-out selling the course to the public.

MSG Kanengo campus Acting Executive Director Dr. Jessie Kabwila and entire backroom staff were in Blantyre on Tuesday, January 24, 2023 for the awareness campaign.

During the opening day, Kabwila disclosed that the new programme is open to both those with computer background and those without computer background.

She added that the programme is expected to assist learners in assessing the security risks inherent in computer networks and the technologies that can be employed to counter such risks.

“In Malawi, MSG is the only institution in Malawi offering this Cyber Security and Networking degree and the programme is one way to secure Malawi 2063. We urge all people from all backgrounds to take advantage of this opportunity and advance their career in cyber security.

“Learners will be equipped with the knowledge, technical and interpersonal skills necessary for taking part in the design, implementation, management and security of modern computer systems,” said Kabwila.
