October 6, 2022 – CyberscapeNaija, a new tech startup that is known for their excellence in changing the current cyber reputation of Nigeria across the globe by providing cyber security trainings and awareness all across the nation. Cyberscape plans to partner with reputable global brands to execute its initiatives including Google, Apple, and The United States Government.
Cyberscape is a cybersecurity and IT workforce development platform with a network of people, companies, content and technology coming together with a dynamic catalog of online courses and experimental tools that provide IT and cybersecurity learning to anyone, anywhere and anytime. Cyberscape is focused on providing Nigerians with trainings, sensitization and awareness in cybersecurity.
“Our aim at Cyberscape is to make Nigeria the number 1 destination in the world for hiring cybersecurity professionals. We are on a mission to educate 1 million Nigerian youths to become cybersecurity professionals by 2030,” says Victor Ekwere Jnr, the Founder/President of Cyberscape.
In 2020, Nigeria was ranked 16th among the countries most affected by internet crimes in the world. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said victims of such crimes lost $4.2 billion in 2020 as against $3.5 billion lost in 2019. The top 5 crimes that were reported include phishing, non-payment/non-delivery, extortion, personal data breach and identity theft. Cybercriminals use Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to break through the defence set up by organizations. Hence organizations need to utilize the same or higher techniques to combat them effectively.
“Our motivation is to transform the current cyber reputation of Nigeria which has been marred by the so-called Nigerian scammers (419 fraudsters) over the years. In recent times, the actions of Hushpuppi and many other scammers have painted a grim picture of Nigeria’s cyber reputation. This is where Cyberscape comes in. We are committed to training the smartest Nigerian minds to become cybersecurity professionals while also providing public awareness on emerging cybersecurity trends,” says Victor Ekwere Jnr, the Founder/President of CyberscapeNaija.
