Law Backing Cyber Security
As at this point, we are aware that there is a bill to that effect. I know there are men and women of wisdom
who know that this is fast becoming a negative “lucrative business” so I know they will act on this. We know
the criminals are not waiting for the laws to be enacted, they keep performing their atrocities. Whatorganizations and individuals can do in the interim is to know how to counter some of these attacks. Those arethe things BCI has to offer. We want to strengthen their IT networks; we want to strengthen their networksecurity through the things we have been privileged to know. Everybody needs to start policing and ensuring
the safety and security of their network. We know there is no legislation yet but of course the “Yahoo Yahoo”
guys are being caught on daily basis with the police prosecuting them based on advanced free fraud orwhatever. There is always another way for a law to be used in handling it. 419 guys are being arrested worldover even as at present. We will not fold our hands until that time, let everybody put due diligence in place inthe form of what happens to their network, what happens to their computer, who accessed it and those are thethings we know can happen before there is a legislation.
Phishing of Fake Websites
BCI has all it takes to phish all the computers and servers used in perpetrating this heinous crime at the cyberspace within two hours. Already, BCI is phishing most of these established fake websites on behalf of some ofthe organizations that have approached us. There are many myths as to what can be done. For every virus,there are anti viruses. For every fake website, there are anti fake website measures that can be applied andthat we are applying. The only challenge is that people are not just aware, that is why we talk more and not
just putting scam alerts, it alerts the scammers as well. Let us move beyond scam alert, let’s move to the point
of addressing some of these attacks. In other countries like in USA where they have a lot of problem withcyber crime, the menace has gradually reduced by the day because they have been able to counter some ofthese attacks. Those are the things we are bringing into Nigeria so they can be countered.
The very cardinal one that is paramount is let there be legislation against cyber crime in Nigeria. We are awareof the fact that the government is also doing what it can in combating this menace that is why we have somegovernment security agencies now venturing into things like that. The government needs to put things in theright perspective and to be aware that cyber crime can wreck the economy of a nation faster than any otherthing. One of the things BCI is offering is to go into collaborative relationships with government agencies thatare already working along this line to see how we can come up with best procedures and processes incombating cybercrime. There is going to a lot of training, workshops and development along that line betweenBCI and some agencies. We have always been told not to think of what the government of our country can dofor us, we should always think of what we can do for our country. This is one of the things we can do for ourcountry. We are willing to go into in-depth developmental training even with our colleagues.
About Background Check International
Background Check International was given birth to out of the sincerity to ensure that we have fullunderstanding of either the people we relate with, do business with or even those that we employ. Of course,talking about the genesis of BCI like we call it, it came out of the discovery that recruitment either done byrecruitment agencies or done directly by organizations is not complete without a way of confirming the claimsmade by the people during interview or on their Curriculum Vitea. We have discovered that the more theunemployment in our society kept increasing, the more people got wiser to make sure they survive so thatthey can actually get all available opportunities.What BCI does is to take care of such claims. We go into claims verification, the certificates that are submittedby applicants, their professional certifications, their National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and even going intothe area of places where people have worked in the past. We help our clients in confirming one or two thingsfrom past employers of applicants or new intakes in companies.
