Experts that can detect, protect and respond to cyber attacks limited in Nigeria—KPMG

That Nigeria as a country is under serious threats of cyber attacks is no more news, but the major problem according to the Director, Technological Advisory, KPMG, John Anyanwu, is that skilled people who could detect, protect and respond to cyber security threats was small in number at the moment.

Explaining issues at a press conference in Lagos, he said the level of expertise required to protect business organisations and their infrastructure from cyber attacks were inadequate in Nigeria and he said as the digital penetration in Nigeria and Africa continues to increase, organisations’ exposure to risk will also rise and the scenario clearly demands a strong poll of cyber security experts to handle the surging and ever changing attack format.

Business Hilights had last week reported that a Partner & Head, Technology Advisory & Markets, KPMG, Mr. Joseph Tegbe, warned companies to develop strong cyber security architecture to always stay atop attackers in other to always guard the loss of their vital information and revenue by creating a secure cyber ecosystem.

Giving more details on the upcoming KPMG Africa Cyber Security Conference holding in Lagos, Tegbe said the conference aims to enlighten participants on leading practices and solutions for individuals and organisations towards building a more secure and resilient cyber ecosystem as Africa goes digital.

The Pan-African conference themed: ‘Security and Resilience in a Digital World’, would bring together stakeholders across Africa to discuss cyber security and resilience as they affected organisations, governments, entities and individuals in the emerging digital African space.
