Update on Cybercrime Documentary

During this quarter, PIN competed for, and won, a Trustworthy Computing (TwC) grant to produce a documentary on the economic cost of cybercrime. The design and logistics are being completed ahead of production in Q4 2012.

Target Audience(s): Nigerian policymakers, business community and youth (13 - 28)

Expected Impact/Outcome: (a) Availability of a reference material that speaks to the economic cost of cybercrime; (b) Video will encourage a new level of discussion by throwing in the economics of cybercrime; (c) Policy direction will be influenced by the video and follow-up discussion

Stakeholders in Support of Project: (a) Economic and Financial Crimes Commission; (b) World Bank (Civil Society Program) (c) Microsoft

Return on Investment: The short term social return on investment will be the new level of discussion around cybercrime issues, not just for the sake of crime or emotional debates, but with facts and figures showcasing the economic cost of cybercrime to Nigeria, Nigerians and Nigerian businesses. A medium-term RoI is the availability of a resource material on the economic cost of cybercrime while the long-term social RoI is the policy change (legislation, etc) that will follow the new wave of discussions.
