Israel To Assist Nigeria With Cybersecurity

Israel has pledged to assist Nigeria in tackling cyber-crime and internal insecurity through the use of modern technology.

This was announced by Guy Feldman, the Israeli ambassador to Nigeria, in Abuja‎ at a conference tagged: ‘Homeland and Cyber Security’.

Feldman said there was need for all hands to be on deck to address the ugly trend of cyber-crime in Nigeria. He said Israel is a small country but it has a vast experience in cyber security, due to its technology and human capital development.

Feldman emphasised the need to deploy hi-tech technology, surveillance cameras and security gadgets to Nigeria’s strategic sectors such as the financial and oil sectors.

The ambassador said that both countries were already discussing how to strengthen ties and enhance business/security relations.

According to thecable.ng, Feldman described Nigeria as the “Lion of Africa’’ which deserves all the support from the international community to evolve a virile and prosperous nation.

He said Israel has the technology and human resources to deal with the cyber security challenge.  And Nigeria’s Minister of Interior Abdulrahman Dambazau emphasised the need to enhance cyber security. His message was that Nigeria would continue to collaborate with Israel and other foreign countries.

Aviad Marco, an Israeli security expert, who delivered a lecture on the efforts at tackling cyber-crime, described the phenomenon as a new form of terrorism. Marco said that the activities of hackers, especially on sensitive database, could bring a country down if not checkmated.

Meanwhile, Nigeria has been receiving foreign support on other homeland security issues as well: The Office of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement within the United States Embassy, in collaboration with the Atlanta Police Department and the Nigeria Police Force, have concluded a one-week Fingerprint Analysis and Forensics training program for 66 police officers, according to punchng.com.

The program was aimed at establishing a US-trained group of Nigerian police investigators skilled in the proper recognition, documentation, and development of latent fingerprint evidence captured from a crime scene.
