The goal of the conference is to map out new strategies to secure government assets and individual security in cyberspace.
It is themed 'Cyber Insecurity – A Latent Threat to National Security and Economic Development'.
Tim Akano, CEO of New Horizons Nigeria, one of the organisers, said: “Our objective is to address the issue of cyber insecurity which excludes Nigerians from transacting genuine business on some of the international payment systems and online retailing activities.
