The Safe Digital Community During COVID-19 (SDCDC-19) is a program organised by Cybersafe Foundation in partnership with the UK Government through its Foreign Development and Commonwealth office (FDCO).
The world has experienced an increasing number of malicious cyber actors exploiting the current COVID-19 pandemic, targeting Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with COVID-19 related scams, and phishing emails, including essential services like healthcare organizations.
While cyber risks cut across board, SMEs particularly are a vulnerable group chiefly because, majority do not have technology, people, or processes in place to detect or defend against cyberattacks. Consequently, SMEs will be the worst prepared and worst hit by successful cyber-attacks.
The SDCDC-19 project is designed to equip SMEs with the knowledge and skills required to identify, protect, detect, defend, and respond to cyber threats, enabling a safe digital community in Nigeria. So far, we have trained 9354 employees from 4528 SME’S in two cohorts.
