The newly appointed Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim, has warned workers to avoid fraudulent acts.
He warned members of staff of NYSC to guide against acts that may jeopardize the gains made in the deployment of Information Communication Technology solutions into the scheme’s operations.
Brig Gen Shuaibu also noted that the ability of the service corps to keep up with current trends has brought about improvement in the scheme’s operations. But, he stressed, that the service corps cannot afford to take for granted threats. Threats such as data breaches, malicious insider activities and account hacking among others.
He urged participants to work towards the perfection of their official assignments on the eNYSC platform.
“There is need for you to ensure seamless operations on the platform. There is a constant revolutionary shift in the way the world works, especially with high-speed machines now performing many functions and NYSC cannot afford to be left behind by this fast moving technology train. Members of staff must guard against acts that may jeopardize the gains made in the deployment of ICT solutions into our operations.”
The DG said there were threats such as data breach and account hacking. He said the introduction of biometric verification had helped in curbing absenteeism and fraud.
