The Jamaica Observer posted an article on March 04, 2021, about claims that NIDS will be secure. Below are some key highlights:
- Programme director of the national identification System (NIDS), Warren Vernon, on Tuesday assured members of the Joint Select Committee (JSC) reviewing the legislation that he is confident in the standards being followed to avoid security risks.
- He said that the system will also depend a lot on Controle Objectives for Information Technologies (COBIT 5), in terms of the governance and security by design.
- He insisted, however, that the security details were not meant for a public forum, and suggested a private meeting of the committee to go into the details of what has been happening in the background regarding the security measures around the NIDS project.
- The JSC will meet again on Wednesday, March 10.
