With the recent security breaches on the Government’s JAMCOVID app and website, would you still be willing to volunteer for the National Identification System (NIDS)?
As long as it is not the same company that is storing the COVID-19 data. Twice website breaches have been detected in one week. Something is off with their management of the programme. No sah.

Before the breach happened I wouldn’t, and even afterwards mi still nah do it.
– Johnson D’shane
Never interested from mawning cause mi know Ja nuh ready fi dat given our status with corruption and crime. All who did want it can now gwan go run it dung.
– Marshawn Young.
Unfortunately, I would not, based on the recent breaches.
– Staay C. Campbell
Yes. If they mess up I can sue.
– Evo Mix
No, is not comfortable for this corrupt country to have all of my info in one place.
– Debbie Reynoldson
Well, I still a go get mine.
– Deon Sinclair
No. If they can’t keep COVID-19 information secure, then I wouldn’t trust them with my other personal information.
– Sean Francis
Yes, but I think we should explore countries with excellent cybersecurity to provide the system.
– Hixroy Walker
We aren’t even ready for online classes much less something of that magnitude. I wasn’t for it in the first place because everything in Jamaica is hackable.
– Naidine Bailey
Even before the breaches I never have it in my mind to accept it.
– Jermaine Montaque
I know it was a bad idea to begin with.
Most definitely! The issues that they face are simple issues to fix. They just need to pay closer attention to their server.
I still can’t see the need for NIDS. Maybe there’s something I’m missing. I can see a need for a better identification system but I can’t see why it has to be NIDS.
Can’t protect basic data, how they plan to protect our biometric data from hackers?
Why we still talking about NIDS? This shouldn’t even be a topic of discussion.
