Cybercrime Pervasiveness, Consequences, and Sustainable Counter Strategies.
Journal of Computer Science and Its Applications, 13 (1).
As our connectivity and dependency on technology increases, so does our vulnerability.
Technology has provided not only new tools, but also new opportunities
for criminals in the digital world. The abuse of new technologies has been threatening
economic and Jinancial security and actually devastating the lives of affected indivicluals. In Nigeria, cybercrime has recorded mostly foregin-based individuals
and organizations as victims thereby getting Nigeria ranked among
the nations with notorious pemasiveness of high-tech crimes. Indeed, adequately
formulating a strategy to contain the menace of cybercrime presents aformidable
challenge to law enforcement. This paper x-rays noted instances of cybercrime
pervasiveness, its devastating consequences, and up-to-date countermeasures in
Nigeria It develops an enforceable/sustainable framework to determine how critical
infrastructures are put at risk snd how law enforcement should react in responding
to the threats.
