the new face of crime
The New Face of Crime
  • Crime has always taken advantage of the tool of the day – post, fax, and now the Internet
  • Century 21’s new opportunities also provide loop holes for crime: Internet freedom and presumed anonymity (free email, chat rooms)
  • They are mostly young, wear innocent statures/faces, are smart, believe they will always beat the system, are proud of their mentors, and have many excuses – those are today’s criminals
  • New operations mostly feed on greed;come in deceptive emails, from bogus promises, through identity theft, and from anonymous offices (cyber-cafes). But office/home-originated cyber crime cannot be ruled out
the need for combat
The Need for Combat
  • The effects of cybercrime on the individual, and the nation’s image – and indices – are obvious. Clog in the wheel of a New Nigeria…
  • The wrong mentorship system that young Nigerians are exposed to encourages a terrible rise in cybercrime tendencies
  • There is a possibility that cybercrime will shift from just cafes into homes and corporate spaces (home access increases, employed youth join Yahoo Boys for PP)
  • The myth that Yahoo Boys are very smart is being broken by the day. See Pete Barlas’s Monday April 11, 2005 article in Investor's Business Daily, “FBI Agent Led Cyber Crime Raid That Broke Big Case In Nigeria”.
capacity building
Capacity Building
  • Combating cybercrime comes from you staying off, and then keeping others away (from the hydra-headed monster)
  • There are tons of ICT skills that young people can learn, that builds clean wealth – website designs, system maintenance, programming, support services, policy engagement, ICT4D, etc [Treasure Avenue: www.treasure.org.ng]
  • There’s a growing demand for experts and researchers who can demystify cybercrime – policy, software solutions, hardware tools, etc
  • Capacity building comes a little easier online – MIT Open Courseware, Google Scholar, School.ie, ITrainOnline, etc
  • Lack of resources won’t be a good excuse!
