The non-governmental organization in the domain of information security, CyberSafe Foundation, has presented plans to equip digitally vulnerable groups and 1,500 SMEs with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify, protect, detect, defend and respond to threats. Cyber ​​threats instigated by COVID-19, enabling a secure digital community.

The foundation, which said it is on a mission to facilitate foci of change to ensure a more secure internet for all who have digital access and reside in Nigeria, has secured funding from the UK Government’s Digital Access Program.

Additionally, it has enlisted the support of KnowBe4 Africa, the Nigerian Association of Cyber ​​Security Experts, CSEAN and other experts to ensure that the program labeled: “Secure Digital Community During COVID-19 Project” is achieved.

The NGO’s founder and CEO, Confidence Staveley, said the global COVID-19 pandemic has created an atmosphere of chaos, confusion and fear, a perfect setting for malicious actors to carry out a variety of attack types.

She noted: “A particularly vulnerable group is small and medium-sized companies, many of which do not have the technology, people or processes to detect or defend themselves against cyberattacks. This project will provide much-needed free skills enhancement training for employees of beneficiary SMEs by cybersecurity experts. “

Staveley also revealed that the volunteer faculty team consists of highly experienced and exceptional cybersecurity leaders based in Nigeria, the UK, Canada, the UAE, the US, the Cayman Islands and South Africa.

He stated that beneficiary SMEs will cover all parts of Nigeria and business sectors, including underserved communities in the northern part of the country and healthcare organizations.

“Learning will be delivered online as a combination of biweekly live training sessions and self-paced learning materials consumed through our learning management system,” he added.
