Nigeria can fight cybercrime without hurting citizens | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

Despite the urgency of fighting cybercrime, there is a need for review and introspection before proceeding with further far-reaching steps. The Nigerian government needs to deploy a more innovative strategy that does not inflict hurt on citizens. This approach could entail many things, including substantial investments in cybersecurity through deliberate program interventions. Such programs will enable young people to acquire the necessary skill sets that could help them get a space in cybersecurity and other related cyber-enabled jobs.

There is a need for proper framing of the challenges as well as the opportunities. No doubt, Nigeria needs more cybersecurity expertise due to limited cybersecurity awareness as a career path. These gaps need to be filled by willing and qualified professionals, so cybercrime is a challenge while cybersecurity is an opportunity. That way, young people will see themselves as part of the solutions and incrementally buy into other helpful government policies.

The potential is so huge that Nigeria could become a net exporter of cybersecurity experts across the continent in the coming years. These prospects will help change the narrative as citizens begin to see the cybersecurity levy as investments in their future rather than funds that the political elite will drain off.
