Digitization and the internet brought about enormous benefits that make life very easy and more efficient. Given the huge benefits, governments, businesses, organizations, and individuals alike now depend heavily on internet technologies in carrying out daily tasks and responsibilities, as well as render services. However, the bad news is that the internet has brought about new forms of criminal activities known as cybercrimes which oftentimes are sophisticated, difficult to trace, and investigate. Consequently, identification of cyber threats and prosecution of cybercrime without reliable and accurate data and skills is very difficult. Cybercrimes pose huge national security challenges as individuals, businesses, organizations, and governments are constantly attacked.
The training aimed to deliver practical skills on Cyber Security and Digital Forensics to members of the Nigerian Armed Forces, Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of government in Nigeria to enhance Cyber Security awareness and provide skills required to tackle the menace of cyber threats in Nigeria.
The training was organised by Center for Strategic Research and Studies (CSRS) of NDC through Department of Science Technology at the Center in collaboration with Cyesec Technologies limited
At the end of the intensive 5 days of hands-on training, participants acquired in-depth knowledge and skills needed to mitigate cyber threats in their respective organizations. Amongst the plethora of skills gained includes techniques to avoid cyber-attacks; vulnerability assessment; penetration testing; data recovery methods using forensic tools; and techniques of forensic investigation.
