Youth Empowerment Against Cybercrime (YEmAC)
The Youth Empowerment Against Cybercrime (YEmAC) project is a youth-driven intervention aimed at reducing the involvement of young people in cybercrime activities in Nigeria. This project will provide meaningful support to young people by building their resilience, addressing their vulnerability and helping them develop positive skills and capabilities. The project will implement various activities to raise awareness and build capacity for the dangers of cybercrime while promoting alternative pathways for young people by empowering them with digital skills.
Formerly Known as Cyber Starters Conference, The Africa Cyber Fest is a youth-focused cybersecurity conference that gathers young talents in Africa to foster knowledge sharing and capacity building, aiming to strengthen the resilience of Africa’s cybersecurity ecosystem. This conference aims to provide a well-rounded and enriching experience for participants, combining educational sessions with hands-on activities, competitions, and opportunities for networking and entertainment.
Building Youth Resilience Against Cybercrime (BYRAC)
The Building Youth Resilience Against Cybercrime (BYRAC) intervention aims to empower at-risk youth, diverting them from the potential path of Serious and Organized Crimes (SOCs) through a multifaceted approach. This includes resilience-building sessions, movie screenings, hands-on digital skills training, and the creation of a virtual safe space.
Sabi Cyber is a CYSED Project implemented during the National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). The cybersecurity awareness campaigns aim to increase awareness of the importance of cybersecurity and data privacy. We organize webinars, social media campaigns, and community outreach events to educate individuals and organizations on how to stay safe online.
Capture the Flag for Brighter Futures (CTF4BF)
As the digital age continues to evolve and shape the world around us, cybercrime has become an increasingly prevalent issue that affects people of all ages and backgrounds. In Nigeria, this problem is particularly acute among the youth population, where many are lured into engaging in criminal activities online due to a lack of opportunities and awareness of the risks involved.
