SafeNet to Increase Nigerian Presence through WiniGroup

SafeNet and WiniGroup to Host IT Security Seminar – Tuesday, June 5, 2012 – Victoria Island, Lagos

Lagos, Nigeria – June 4, 2012WiniGroup, an international value-added security solutions provider, today announced that SafeNet®, Inc., the US-based global leader in data protection, authentication and encryption, is increasing its presence in Nigeria through the company. SafeNet and WiniGroup are hosting a one day IT security seminar on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. The workshop targets top IT, e-business and risk management professionals from financial institutions, telecommunications, oil and gas, manufacturing, services, education and government.


“The recent cashless economy directive by the Central Bank of Nigeria has brought vulnerabilities existing in Nigeria’s e-commerce platform, data breaches and identity theft to the forefront,” commented Tim Akano, vice chairman, WiniGroup. “Additionally, the general public is understandably apprehensive at the readiness of the financial sector to ensure security of not just the platform but the safety of their customers. With Cameroon and Nigeria having been identified as the world’s two most notorious countries for e-payment fraud, this seminar will address such concerns and help organizations confidently move forward in a safe and secure manner in the cashless economy.”

With the introduction of the cashless economy policy, SafeNet will examine hot and relevant topics including data risk; file, network and WAN encryption and control; multi-factor authentication, licensing and monetization solutions for hybrids; on-premise and cloud-based software portfolios; financial data security; government security solutions for protecting communications; sensitive and classified data; cloud security; intellectual properties and digital identities.
