CSEAN tackles cyber threats in digital age
As reported global cyber attacks continue to rise, despite the constant flow of security updates and patches, experts have vowed to continue raising awareness campaign till the situation is curbed in Nigeria.
The President, Cyber Security Experts Association of Nigeria (CSEAN), Remi Afon stressed the need to have data protection law and upgrade the existing cyber crime laws, which he described as outdated.
At the 4th edition of CSEAN annual conference, theme: “Mitigating Cyber threats in the digital ages” Afon warned that if plans are not put in place to protect data, the situation is capable of compromising politicians image.
“We are all aware that a lot of fake news is going round and this will continue even the politicians if they are not careful, their image is going to be compromised.
“It is quite unfortunate that the government is so slow about it and they are not doing anything about it at the moment. There is a need to have data protection law and it is a matter of urgency otherwise, it is not going to be a crime for anybody to compromise people’s data.
So there is a need to protect and make sure that organisations are held accountable if there is a breach or data in their possession is being compromised,” he stated.
