The Nigerian Communications Commission is proud to participate in National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) in October 2017.
NCSAM is an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to equip the Nigerian public with the tools and resources they need to stay safe. The Commission believes strongly in this mission. As a partner in the Department of Homeland Security’s Stop.Think.Connect.™ Campaign, NCC is committed to promoting online safety for everyone.
During NCSAM, we urge every Nigerian to take steps to create a safer Internet - even small actions can make a huge difference in defending from cyber threats. Here are some simple tips everyone can follow to keep themselves, their identities, and their information safe online:
- Set strong passwords.
Make them long and complex, change them regularly, and don’t share them with anyone.
- Secure your most sensitive accounts.
When it is available, use multi-factor authentication to keep your accounts more secure.
- Treat personal information like money.
Information about you, such as your purchase history and location, has value, so be cautious about how your information is collected by apps and websites.
- Keep a clean machine.
Regularly update the software on your Internet-connected devices, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets, to reduce the risk of infection from malware.
- Maintain an open dialogue.
Talk with your family, friends, and community about Internet safety. With technology always changing, make the online safety conversation an ongoing and evolving conversation as well.
- Limit what you share.
Control and limit who can see your information online by checking the privacy and security settings on your accounts and apps.
- Don’t believe everything you read.
Be cautious about what you receive or read online—if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
- When in doubt, throw it out.
If you see a suspicious link in an email, tweet, social media post, or online advertising, it’s best to delete it or, if appropriate, mark it as junk.

The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is an international organization, non-profit corporation that has responsibility for Internet protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol Identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions.
ICANN has informed the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) of the upcoming change to an important security configuration parameter related to the root zone, which is scheduled to take place on 11th October, 2017.
The root zone key signing key (KSK) will be changed in a process called a key rollover, which is the first change since the DNSSEC was enabled in 2010. This change must be widely and carefully coordinated by network operators with ICANN.
