Upgraded Era To Host Cyber Security Challenge At Securex West Africa 2017
Securex West Africa and the West African Cyber Security Summit (WACSS) 2017
Cyber security in Nigeria is becoming an increasingly pertinent topic as it poses a growing threat to the country’s security. Cyber threats and attacks are becoming commonplace, sophisticated and damaging. This evolving landscape is requiring a far more focused and urgent response to the growing risks presented by cyber attacks. Nigeria has been making huge leaps in its response to cyber crime; in 2015 the cybercrime bill was signed into law, meaning that cybercrime is now properly defined and legal consequences are attached to any defiance of this law. However, there is still a huge way to go and it is important now more than ever that public and private sectors must work to build a strategy to tackle the risk. One way this can be accomplished is through knowledge sharing and it is for this reason that in 2017 Securex West Africa, organised by Afrocet Montgomery, will be launching the West African Cyber Security Summit “WACSS”.
