Tweya Attacks IPPR over Information Access Report
INFORMATION minister Tjekero Tweya on Tuesday labelled a report by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) as being “unfounded and misleading”.
The report, titled ‘Access Denied’, was published and launched by the IPPR in early December last year, and contained the findings of an access to information survey of more than 100 public, private, civil society organisations and state-owned enterprises.
Cybersecurity needs a multi-stakeholder approach
NAMIBIAN civil society organisations have called for a multi-stakeholder approach to finding solutions to combat cyber security and crime in the country.
This is reflected in a report titled ‘Tackling cyber security/crime in Namibia: calling for a human rights respecting framework’, authored by chairperson of the Access to Information in Namibia (ACTION) Coalition, Frederico Links, and published by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR).
At the launch yesterday, Links said there was a need for multi-stakeholder consultations to draw up a framework for cybersecurity legislation in Namibia.
