REPORT: Nigeria Losses About N127bn to Cybercrime Annually
According to the Director General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) Nigeria losses about N127 billion to cybercrime as a result of the country’s inability to properly secure her information system. This is caused in part by our inability to adequately secure our Information Systems. The Director-General also added that the global IT industry is expected to hit $5 trillion by the end of 2019. This was made known yesterday in Abuja during the stakeholders’ engagement for the review of the guidelines for information system audit and software testing.
