Caricel joins Global Cyber Alliance to make Jamaica's LTE Broadband Network Secure

“Our partnership with the Global Cyber Alliance is part of our commitment to provide our customers with the best internet experience in the country and create a positive impact on our community. Caricel seeks to provide quality service with the added peace of mind that we are doing everything we can to protect our customer from harm,"

Director and CEO of Caricel, Lowell Lawrence, commenting on his company joining the GCA (Global Cyber Alliance)

Caricel is showing that they're interested in their customer’s welfare in a world of increasing cyberattacks!

They've now joined the GCA (Global Cyber Alliance) as reported in the article “Caricel Joins Global Cyber Alliance”, published Dec 12, 2016 by Caricel.

Caricel certainly isn't making a little thing like a telecom license held them back as noted in my blog article entitled “Symbiote Investments Limited gets DMSL License for Caricel as 5G coming in 2020”. 

The GCA is basically an international watchdog that seeks an alliance with Telecom providers in the ongoing fight by government, businesses and individuals to protect their servers against cyber attacks.

So Caricel is more than welcomed as this shows they're in it for the people and it's not all about the Benjamins, to quote Philip Reitinger, President and CEO of GCA: “I am extremely pleased to welcome Caricel as a Global Cyber Alliance partner.  GCA applauds Caricel's efforts to provide a more secure Internet experience for the citizens and businesses of Jamaica. We look forward to working with Caricel and our other partners to enhance wireless security in the Caribbean, using GCA's projects to help protect Caricel's customers and Caricel's capabilities and contributions to make the Internet safer for everyone”.

He even gave Caricel a shout-out on Twitter!

The GCA is a 501(c)3 organization that was founded in September 2015 by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, the City of London Police and the Center for Internet Security. Threats such as phishing, malware, spyware and other threats continue to rise, as these faster networks make life super easy for hackers to gain access to data stored on EU (End User) devices such as Laptops, Computers, Tablets and smartphone as well as in company servers.

Not to mention some telecom equiptment makers such as Huawei, ZTE and BLU harvesting our personal information for the Secret Service as well as to guess what we want more accurately as pointed out in my Geezam blog article entitled “How 700 million Chinese Phones with Adups firmware can Spy on You”.

GCS' mantra of “Do Something. Measure it” is made possible thanks to international collaboration between telecom providers, bringing together communities of interest and affiliations together to research and environment concrete, measureable solutions.

Caricel, currently Jamaica's only superfast LTE broadband network, has already tolled out their modem offering for 2017 as explained in my Geezam blog article entitled “Caricel’s Unlimited Modems implies FLOW and Digicel going Unlimited in 2017”.

By joining the GCA alliance, they're guaranteeing that their customers are in safe hands.
