Hi, I’m Amakiri Welekwe; the author of this blog. The Maiguard is Nigeria’s foremost digital security advocacy blog covering security news, cybercrime, digital privacy, opinion and advice.
My primary objective is to draw the attention of end users, business entities, government, at-risk groups, IT & security professionals in Nigeria to the latest computer security issues & developments around the world and to also inform the world about developments within the Nigerian digital security space.
As we transition from the margins to the mainstream of the digital economy, we are increasingly exposed to new risks that threaten our personal, corporate and national security. It is therefore my hope that this blog would lend a hand in raising awareness on digital security and digital rights especially among the vulnerable group; and ultimately in maintaining a healthy digital society.
