Kaspersky Lab has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the National Agency of Digital Infrastructures and Frequencies (ANINF). ANINF is the Gabonese government agency responsible for implementing a digital development strategy in the country.
It manages the planning, installation and application of all digital projects, including telecommunications, audio-visual and IT in the Gabonese Republic.
The signing ceremony took place on 23 June 2015 in Libreville, Gabon. Alex Bernard Bongo Ondimba, general-director at ANINF, and Veniamin Levtsov, vice-president: enterprise and presale at Kaspersky Lab, signed the agreement to collaborate in the area of IT security.
In terms of the MoU with ANINF, Kaspersky Lab will provide the agency with threat intelligence, hold specialist training sessions to share its technical expertise and participate in joint activities.
Levtsov comments: “We at Kaspersky Lab believe that joint efforts are crucial to make the cyberspace safer and we are proud to collaborate with the authorities of many countries around the globe in fighting cybercrime. By signing the memorandum with ANINF, we are delighted to start cooperation with the Gabonese government and are sure it will be mutually beneficial and successful.”
