The 2014 Nigerian Cyber Threat Barometer is a landmark research project conducted by Digital Jewels in partnership with Wolfpack Information Risk (Pty) Ltd , the South African based Information Security Firm that published the South African Cyber Threat Barometer report in 2012. Both research projects were funded by the British High Commission.
The research included a cross section of subject matter experts drawn from key sectors of the economy: Financial Services, e-Payment companies, Telecoms, Oil and Gas, Government Agencies and Regulatory Authorities. The report highlights key findings and recommendations across three main themes: Problem Definition, Root Cause identification and Solution Exploration focused on determining the main Cyber threats facing Nigeria, as well as providing areas for the UK and Nigeria to work together to advance the security and prosperity of both countries.
We hope that as this report is unveiled today, the analysis, findings and recommendations included therein provide the necessary impetus for major stakeholders in the public and private sector to apply far reaching measures to positively enhance the legal and regulatory framework, citizenry awareness, process framework and technology application towards combating Cyber threats.
