Cybersecurity experts have attributed high level of cyber -attacks in Nigeria and other Africa countries to low attribution and deterrent, warning that unless regulatory authorities step up policies aimed at increasing attribution cyber- attack will remain endemic for long. William Makatiani, managing director, Serianu, told Nigeria CommunicationsWeek that cyber attacks in Nigeria and Africa will continue to be on the increase as long as cyber and electronic frauds are not attributed. “Security is complicated because there is local aspect around securing systems; most of our fraudsters live here. There is no way somebody will come from the US and secure it, that is the hard work. We need somebody to understand how these people are doing it. Only locals can do it.
