CSEAN to launch 2016 NCSAM with #ShineYourEye4Internet

In recognition of the 2016 National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), the Cyber Security Experts Association of Nigeria (CSEAN) has concluded plans to unveil hashtag #ShineYourEye4Internet, reports ITRealms.

CSEAN President, Mr. Remi Afon disclosed this to ITRealms saying that the hashtag #ShineYourEye4Internet, is the group’s way of drawing attentions of Nigerians to internet fraud. This hashtag comes on the heels of #CyberAware and #NoFallInternetMaga, as he enjoined Nigerians to spread the cyber gospel.

He outlined some CSEAN plans for this year’s NCSAM to include launch of the hashtags via social media on October 1.

This, he said, would be followed with a weeklong activity from October 3 through 7 focusing on #Cyberbullying – Moral and Social Responsibility on the Free Highway.

In addition, Mr. Afon said the first week would see CSEAN interactive lecture on ‘Data Privacy’ for members of staff of National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) as well as a half day lecture on Advanced Persistent Threats for members of staff of National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA).

The second week of October 10-14, he said, would focus on #Dataprivacy -  Protecting your personal data from hackers, stressing that CSEAN planned a half day lecture on ‘Identity Theft’ for members of staff of ‘Vehicle Inspection Agency (VIO) and in collaboration with the Lagos Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists, a strategically designed cyber security workshop for journalists.

Equally, Afon said, there will be a STOP THINK CONNECT #ShineYourEye4Internet #NoFallInternetMaga awareness campaign in selected secondary schools across Nigeria. 

Just as he said that the week 3 which last till October 21, would centre on #Phishing – Don’t fall for the bait; would be an interactive lecture on phishing for members of staff of selected commercial banks in Nigeria.

The week 4 programme on NCSAM, Afon said would be on #IdentityTheft: Are my identity all over the place? Even as STOP THINK CONNECT alongside #ShineYourEye4Internet #NoFallInternetMaga would be trending among selected higher institutions in the country.

The last and fifth week of NCSAM for 2016, he said, would be on ‘Nigeria: Building Resilience in Critical Systems’ with emphasis on critical infrastructure and highlights of the roles the public in keeping it #secure.

The Internet, he said, underlies nearly every aspect of everyday lives, keeping crucial systems like electricity, transportation and communications up and running, hence, CSEAN is leading the national effort in providing guidance to keep critical infrastructure safe secure.
