Cyber Crime and Cyber Security- Prevention and Control with Respect to Indian Cyber Laws (Published)
Electronic security and privacy are currently ruled by a completely ineffective regulatory body in India. The authority to prosecute and levy fines under the IT Act 2000 and the IT Amendment Act 2008 on non-compliance has slept for several years and relatively few major reforms have been made in recent years in the laws on cyber security, data security and identity safety. In 2013, the government drew up a national cyber security strategy, generating significant interest both in India and abroad, particularly as India was a growing outsourcing destination. Regrettably, reforms were not easily available for purposes that had such a detrimental effect on the government’s objective of timely, robust and strict regulations in these matters.The increasing spike in cybercrime produces over-dependent governments and technology firms. Today, cyber crime is rising.Wars between nations will move from military struggle to cyberspace in the immediate future. Cyber-battles can now be valuable weapons in the hands of global force rivals; cybercrime will also become a business for $1 million. We need straightforward and easy approaches to reduce cybercrime. To tackle cybercrime. While the suspects are still unfaced, they could be your neighbour next door, or in another urban area or world. This crime can be hard to control or dissuade. This form of crime may be directed toward governmental institutions, ministries and enterprises irrespective of scale and size. As free and open resources are available online and scripting will also allow children to download and run against any unknown targets without knowing what the attacker needs to do on a daily basis.

Harnessing Cyberspace Intelligence and the Fight against Boko Haram in North-Eastern Nigeria (Published)
Intelligence gathering is key to the war against terrorism. However, intelligence in the 21st century cannot make the desired impact without the use of cyber-space and cyber-intelligence. This is because terrorists in their resolve to over-come national boundaries in order to inflict terror on the populace find cyber-space as handy tool to use. Therefore, this paper argues that checkmating and monitoring the cyber-space is not an option but imperative to succeed the battle against terrorism. Evidence abound that Boko haram insurgents in Nigeria have appreciable track record of making use of cyber-space to perpetrate their atrocities. However, this paper discovers to its chagrin there is near lack of monitoring of Nigeria’s cyber-space. As a result, the terrorists are having a field-day in its usage. This has negative consequence on the nation’s quest to defeat boko haram. The paper therefore, challenges the security hierarchy in Nigeria to as a matter of urgency rise to the occasion.
