Digital Encode, a cyber-security and Compliance Advisory Company has cautioned organisations against over-dependence on cyber security products for protection against cyber-attacks.
The founders of Digital Encode, Dr. Wale Obadare and Dr. Oluseyi Akindeinde, who gave the warning, also expressed worries over the implementation of none impactful cyber security solutions to organisations by vendors which has resulted in increased loss of money and data to organisations.
They spoke at the recent Digital Encode retreat for staff in Dubai, United Arab Emirate to equip them for a blissful career.
Obadare, further said major challenge organisations face in the fight against cybercriminal and cyber warfare was lack of trained manpower.
“I have been in cyber security ecosystem for many years now and have identified lack of trained manpower in most organisations. “Cyber security is not a certificate that speaks for you, but a continuous training to be ahead of the smart criminals, most organisations find it difficult to continually update their IT security staff to be able to face cyber threats,” he said.
Akindeinde, emphasised the need for a national cyber security framework against industry specifics frameworks.
