Description

Security awareness is the knowledge and attitude members of an organization possess regarding the protection of the physical, and especially informational, assets of that organization. Raising consciousness regarding potential risks of the rapidly evolving forms of information and the rapidly evolving threats to that information which target human behaviour is a very important proactive measure to protect a company’s existence and viability

Presently, there is no coordinated national effort in Nigeria to stem this trend. The growing importance for information security spurred the need for Information security Awareness (ISA) education. Hence we have developed a national awareness campaign and a strategy to communicate and educate on information security practices among the various sections of public including housewives, students of schools, colleges and universities and industry including SME sectors and non IT organizations.
