Understanding online security is not just important for young people but essential to fueling innovation due to the increasing level of dependence on the internet in carrying out daily activities, the Director General National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Kachifu Inuwa Abdullahi, has said.

“The sustainability of innovation itself is ensured by security as the most cutting-edge platforms can collapse in an instant without strong security measures,”

Abdullahi noted while speaking in Abuja at the recent Nigeria Teen Cyber Festival 2023 organised by the Child Cyber Protection (CCPro) initiative in collaboration with NITDA and other stakeholders including the Baze University, Nigeria Data Protection Commission (NDPC), National Orientation Agency (NOA). Knowhow Media and Market Intelligence International (KMMIIL) and the UNICCON Group of Companiesamong others.

Abdullahi said that while individuals bear responsibility, tech giants and governments are also responsible for safeguarding digital space through more proactive measures, partnerships and collaborations. Click HEREto read all
