Global leading IT solutions provider, WiniGroup Ltd has urged Nigerian banks to collaborate on cybersecurity to tackle the increasing cyber attacks on their networks, noting that cyber fraud is growing and banks should not take it lightly.

Vice chairman of WiniGroup, Mr. Tim Akano disclosed during a workshop organised by WiniGroup Limited with its partner, Checkmarx, Israel’s leading Static Application Security Testing (SAST) developer for Nigerian banks and telecom operators in Lagos that they must protect their critical infrastructures from going down through cyber attacks.

Akano said WiniGroup exists to bridge the technology divides between the West and Africa leveraging on cutting-edge software and hardware solutions to drive cost southward, eliminating wastes and grow revenue for its clients in Africa.

Mr. Shahar Alon, business development manager from Checkmarx, said collaboration should be part of the lifecycle of any professional in charge of security noting that it will be a natural response of industry to understand that in order to survive chief information officers (CIOs) would have to collaborate. “If a bank in Nigeria falls, it is going to affect all other banks.

Alon said it is not a specific problem of one bank, once the community understands they are in this together, they need to make sure that all banks, all businesses, all e-payment companies are secured.
