ICT Best Practices Forum in Burkina Faso
In 2010, Burkina Faso hosted the 3rd Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) Best Practices Forum, attended by over 300 government and corporate leaders from 55 countries. Cybersecurity was the theme of this year’s forum, with much attention given to cloud computing strategies. H.E. Blaise Campaore, President of Burkina Faso, Dr. Cheick Modibo Diarra, Microsoft Chairman of Africa, and Dr. Hamadoun Touré, Secretary General, ITU (International Telecommunications Union), each offer their insights into how Africa can share best practices in the ICT sector to facilitate the region’s development.
