The theme for this year is “Digital Innovation & Entrepreneurship as a Panacea for Challenges to Sustainable Economic Development in Nigeria.”
According to the GBB boss, the agency provides quality IT infrastructure and shared services for the Federal Government as well as the private sector from its ICT Infrastructure that will enhance and promote the government’s digital services in a smart, secure and sustainable manner.
Among the services are its Data Centre, Cloud and Cybersecurity Services, and smart home plans (e-Connect services) which offer Fibre-to-Homes, Fibre- to-Estates and Fibre-to-Small Offices for those residing within the Federal Capital Territory – Abuja, the statement said.
“Through these, GBB is projecting the strength of its fibre connectivity services as a way to connect more people, improve the efficiency of businesses and enhance the productivity of their clients.
“To support colocation, host and disaster recovery for organisations, GBB has Uptime Certified Tier III & Tier IV Datacentres that are available and accessible for use by both the public and private sector organisations,” the statement said.
The GBB has also shown expertise in establishing and sustaining a secure and certified data centre within the nation’s public sector space, and this is one of the great feats of the agency.
“To strengthen its asset base and guarantee information assurance, GBB is now deploying state-of-the-art digital infrastructure and applying international best practices to backstop public sector organisations’ sensitive data and enabling a growing number of private sector organizations with digital services to facilitate their digital transformation journey.
“The level of professionalism on offer coupled with about 12 years experience as ISO27001, ISO 20000 compliant and recently PCI DSS certified to support the Financial Sector, has become a reference point for other organisations that are considering getting on the GBB platform,” the statement said.
Professor Abubakar said further that the huge investments that have gone into this infrastructure are for the benefit of the public and private establishments, stressing that the experience of GBB in building, deploying and providing infrastructure as a service, is a testimony to its ability to manage and continue in this line of business.
