Click Smart. Click Safe.

With about 3.9 billion users, the internet has become one of the greatest technological developments. While it is widely accepted for its ease and efficiency, it is also embedded with a multitude of vulnerabilities, which pose significant security threats to users and has led to the emergence of cybercrime. In Nigeria for instance, approximately 30 million people were victims to cybercrime with an estimated financial loss due to cybercrime at N250 billion ($649 million) in 2017 and N288 billion ($800 million) in 2019. The primary reason for this is cyber illiteracy. This cyber illiteracy puts everyone at risk, parents and teachers have limited knowledge about online safety, and then children and young adults who are the heavy users of technology become highly vulnerable to cybercrime and this is an issue of serious concern.
