ECZ REFUTES REPORTS THAT THE EXAMINATIONS SYSTEM HAS BEEN HACKED

 

The Examinations Council of Zambia (ECZ) wishes to refute some media reports alleging that the Examinations System has been hacked by unscrupulous individuals who are altering results for people at a fee.

From the outset, we should state that the Examinations System HAS NOT been TEMPERED with in anyway. For a fact, the ECZ has heavily invested in ICTs to increase and expand both technological and infrastructure base to achieve full automation of processes and systems. We take great exception to issues of ICT security in order to meet the convenience and technical innovation expectations of stakeholders.

We want to assure the public that the Examinations System is extremely secured and is operating normally. As an examining body, we remain committed to providing assessments and certification systems which meet global standards and credibility.
