According to Mr. Nwogha Chibuike, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Techcode Nigeria, the programme with the theme, “’Strengthen the Security Ecosystem and Cybersecurity Cluster” is intended to digitally influence the cyberspace by offering a platform for participants discussion as well as various products and services that will help bridge the gap between digital information in Nigeria and in West Africa as a whole.
Cybercrimes in the country are on the rise and it is evident from the number of cases that are reported on the media. The number of compromised records in the past few years are in excess of about 900 million globally. Cybercrimes have far reaching impacts including disruption of critical infrastructure, financial frauds and data breaches amongst others.
The huge payoff that cybercrimes offer at a minimal cost coupled with no constraints of geographical boundaries, has added to the rapidly increasing instances of such crimes. Many of these cyber criminals’ current exploits are going unnoticed. Secycone 2019 Conference will focus on how businesses can protect themselves from falling victims and also learn how to mitigate these threats in a digital age through workshops, technical sessions, plenary sessions and breakout session.
The Conference is uniquely merged with exhibition to provide a platform to display state of the art safety products and solutions, showcase the latest technology, provide networking and marketing opportunities for manufacturers and also attract prospective investors to the South Eastern region.
Mr. Nwogha posted that SECYCONE 2019, the 2nd Edition of the South-east CyberSecurity Conference, will be holding in Enugu State because of the State’s strategic and economic importance in the South-East and will have about two thousand persons in attendance from the south-east, inclusive of stakeholders.

“Cyber threats and attacks are constantly growing and becoming more sophisticated, dangerous and damaging and it is a top priority for businesses to protect their networks, computers, and information from unauthorized access and breaches.”
As enterprises and government provide most services online to their clients today, the size of cyber-attack has grown exponentially. As more specialists join the ranks, more malware is being launched than ever before. It is not all about compliance; it is also about security being proactive and not reactive.
The watch word for all Government, Private Business and Individual, is to be PREPARED!
