Abstract

The crucial role cybercafés play in the use of the Internet for business necessitates the development of appropriate cybercafé security policy in Nigeria. This chapter looks at how cybercafé security policy can be used to reduce criminal activities perpetrated in Nigerian cybercafés against individuals and organizations who use the Internet for various business transactions. The chapter proposes that, if Nigeria and Nigerians are to benefit from the highly electronized modern business environment, developing and implementing an all-encompassing cybercafé security policy has become a must. It was therefore concluded that such a policy should be a part of National Information Policy and should cover both technical security needs and social security needs.
