Cyberspace, also known as the Internet or the 5th global domain, has transformed Nigerian government functions, citizens’ interactions, and corporate organisations  ways of communicating, conducting personal and commercial interactions at great  speed and efficiency. It has greatly transformed the way many Nigerians interact with  the world at large.

While accolades to the commercial success of the Internet may be made, there is  also a challenge in identifying and curbing cyber threat in cyberspace. It is well documented that the Internet is being used as a vehicle to carry out criminal activity  within Nigeria’s borders. These activities adversely affect the country economy, individuals and organisations within Nigeria’s physical territorial boundaries from a  financial, reputational, security and privacy perspective.

Where external threat actors such as foreign intelligence agencies, hackers and other online criminals, are carrying out the activities they can also threaten the national security posture, which includes the economic, political and social fabric of  Nigeria.

The Nigerian government developed two documents – National Cybersecurity Policy and National Cybersecurity Strategy – within the constructs of cybersecurity. They were launched by the former National Security Adviser during Goodluck Jonathan administration.
