A Holistic Mobile Security Framework for Nigeria

Since the inception of mobile telecommunication in Nigeria in 2002 as Global System for Mobile Telecommunication (GSM) and Code Division for Multiple Access (CDMA), there has been a meteoric rise in the number of subscribers as well as the security challenges affecting the mobile telecommunication platforms. Security challenges such as hackers' attacks to personal data and corporate networks leading to loss of privacy and funds, the threats of malicious programs such as virus, worms, Trojans, bombs, etc as a result of massive interconnectivity to the internet by the majority of the subscribers using mobile phones as well as synchronization of mobile equipment to Personal Computers (PCs) and corporate networks, and the rampant theft of mobile equipment have been identified to constitute the greatest security challenges.
