It’s Cyber Security Awareness Month and we ask, where is Nigeria with Cyber Security?
Out of the estimated 3.5 billion internet users in the world, Nigeria records a whooping 67,101,452 million in a population of more than 170 million (about 37% internet penetration).
The non-existence of a credible or effective implementation of the national policy or legislations on cybersecurity or even the guidelines on monitoring and censoring internet content, etc. makes cyber security in Nigeria a daunting task.
With the increasing sophistication of criminal and terrorist acts, new and innovative surveillance/monitoring systems becomes very imperative.
Globally, next to terrorism, Cyber crime or Cyber Security challenges pose the next major threat to humanity.
According to Europol’s Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA) 2016 report, Nigeria is the 3rd cybercrime hotspot in the world. Why is this so?
What needs to be done to salvage this situation?
