Lagos - Experts have urged Nigeria to be hands-on in addressing rampant cybercrime in the West African country.

The advice has come at the end of the CyberXchange Conference held at the Landmark Event Centre in Lagos.

“Organizations, boards and CEOs need to be proactive in dealing with cyber crime,” Dr David Isiavwe, President of Information Security Society of Africa-Nigeria (ISAAN), said.

CyberXchange Conference is West Africa’s premier information security conference.

The conference was strategically aimed at updating information security professionals on the essential security trends that will enhance protection for company and client’s most valuable assets.

“I particularly enjoyed the hackathon that brought talented students together to design prototypes and build community with others who share a passion for cyber security,” said Stamos.

Nigeria is ranked the worst country in Africa on cyber crime, committed mostly by youngsters taking advantage of the rise in online services.
