Description

Cyber attacks (impersonation, misuse of data, and hacking) increasingly make headlines in Nigeria and cost the government an estimated 75 billion naira a year. This session will discuss cybersecurity threats and the critical importance of building cross-functional teams to create a holistic approach that improves cyber outcomes. It will also cover the importance of private sector collaboration and the need to ensure that cybersecurity is not undermined by regulatory fragmentation. Taking into account Nigeria's past, current, and future challenges on tackling cyber-risks, this session will discuss how to effectively implement cybersecurity frameworks.
