The Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS) Plc has said arrangement has been concluded with regulators, operators, experts and other key stakeholders to brainstorm on ways to tackle cybersecurity challenges in the country and around the globe.
Chief Executive Officer, CSCS, Mr Haruna Jalo-Waziri made this known to newsmen yesterday in Lagos.
Haruna stated that he advocated for collective responsibility, saying “anybody using technology should be very careful and must know ways to protect its data and information.”
Speaking on the CSCS 2022 cybersecurity conference themed: ‘Future of cybersecurity and emerging opportunities, he said the conference is timely given the increasing global incidence of cyber-attacks, especially as network compromise arising from remote connections associated with work-from-home presents new forms of cybersecurity exposures.
He explained that there is a need to protect one another and the ecosystem from the rising vulnerabilities of cybercrimes.
“We need to protect ourselves and our ecosystem from the rising vulnerabilities of cybercrimes.
“This is very crucial as we surf the internet and connect to different applications either on our official networks or personal devices.
“At CSCS, we believe everyone’s awareness and conscious practice of best approaches in cybersecurity should be a key aspect of how people live and work in today’s environment, especially as everyone needs to take responsibility for protecting the integrity of networks and systems, not just for our personal interest but also in ensuring the integrity and safety of our ecosystem and the broader market.
“Cybersecurity is not the responsibility of the Information Technology (IT) officers, rather it is a collective responsibility of everyone connected to the system, including customers, who we must continuously educate on best practices to prevent them from being the weakest link in our systems.” He stated.
