Nigeria’s Data Death Trap: Expert Warns Firms Must Secure or Be Sued


DATA SECURITY APARTHEID: NIGERIA’S CYBER SENSITIVITY IN LIMBO

In a damning indictment of Nigeria’s data security readiness, a new study reveals that an astonishing 94% of IT and security leaders reported a significant cyber attack in the past year. And the worse part? Sixty-six percent of these attacks occurred in cloud environments, leaving the country’s digital future in shambles.

The findings are a stark reminder that Nigeria is woefully unprepared to face the devastating consequences of a data breach. With 93% of external organisations conducting a formal data loss notification to a governing organization, the country’s data security landscape is a ticking time bomb.

In a desperate bid to contain the crisis, Rubrik, the self-proclaimed "multicloud data control company", is hosting a webinar in Nigeria, allegedly to "teach delegates how to strengthen their data security approach" and "identify factors that may be putting their data in danger". But is it too little, too late?

The truth is, Nigeria’s data security apocalypse is a symptom of a deeper problem. With the country’s data regulatory framework in disarray, it’s no wonder that cyber attacks are rampant and going unpunished. The government must take immediate action to address this critical issue before it’s too late.

REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR – BUT DON’T EXPECT A Miracle

The Rubrik webinar promises to "explore how detrimental an attack could be for the organisation". But what’s the point of attending if the country’s data security infrastructure is fundamentally flawed?

So, if you’re an information security decision-maker in Nigeria, register for the webinar, but don’t expect a magical fix to Nigeria’s data security woes.
