The Acting Executive Chairman, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulkarim Chukkol has charged law enforcement officers to imbibe the culture of continuous learning to improve their skills.
Chukkol gave the charge on July 25, 2023, through the Commandant, EFCC Academy, Ayo Olowonihi while addressing participants in a 3-day training programme jointly organized by the Commission and the Nigeria Internet Registration Association, NIRA.
According to him, “when the brain stops learning, it begins to die”, adding that the training is aimed at creating a conducive atmosphere for capacity building and networking among the participants which will foster synergy for better collaboration amongst the various Agencies in eradicating all forms of crimes in Nigeria.
The lead facilitator and immediate past president of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association and CEO of Internet Experience Providers of Nigeria, IXPN, Mr. Muhammed Rudman, said the Association identified a need for capacity improvement in cyber security for law enforcement agencies hence the resolve to partner with the EFCC to train other law enforcement professionals.
“All we are trying to do is to bring together the key actors in the security eco-system. The idea is to build a human network where we can collaborate together in the private sector and government to see how we can address the issues around cyber security and to provide capacity building,” he said.
Dr Rislan Kanya, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research and Innovation, Baze University, Abuja who facilitated the course on Cloud Computing said “The opportunity is massive…we need to move forward in the digital transformation journey. As we are talking about cloud computing, we also need to think about how to revamp our processes and secure our country by effectively leveraging this technology.”
Mr. Victor Idonor, CEO of Cystec Nigeria, and Dr. Daniel Omofoman of the African University of Science and Technology trained the participants on the Advance Use of the Internet and Searching Techniques, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology respectively.
The Agencies represented at the training include the EFCC, Nigeria Police Force, Nigeria Customs Service, NSCDC, CCB, DSS, NDLEA, Nigeria Immigration Service, FRSC, Fire Service, and NAPTIP.BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
