e-Crime Bureau, a leader cybersecurity and digital forensics service provider, has been adjudged as the best cybersecurity company at the 2018 edition of the Ghana Information Technology and Telecoms Awards (GITTA) which came off at the Movenpick Hotel, Accra.
A member of the company’s board, Kwame Antwi-Boasiako, who picked up the award, told the B&FT that as the pioneers of cybersecurity activities in the country, the award is an affirmation of the work it started some years ago.
“Today’s award is actually going to spur us on to open up the cyber security activities and cooperate with organisations so that they will appreciate the importance of cyber security and forensics in the ever changing face of technology,” he said.
He added that at e-Crime Bureau, the customer or client is paramount in what they do. “We are a customer-focused company and we look at the needs of our clients and tailor measure them to satisfy their needs so that at the end of the day it brings satisfaction not only to the clients but also to the business,” he added.
Mr. Boasiako noted that with the cybersecurity sector growing, e-Crime Bureau will continue to fully explore the market to cement its position as the leader despite the growing competition. “We welcome competition. It will rather urge us on to even improve on the quality of service that we provide to our clients and all stakeholders.”
