CyberQ Group, an award-winning and international cyber innovator, is delighted to
announce a new strategic partnership with Nigeria’s leading digital communications
service company, Backbone Connectivity Network (BCN), to provide advanced cyber

Abuja and Lagos. As a result, the partnership in providing managed cyber security
solutions to its clients will support the enhancement of trust, security and confidence
in Nigeria’s digital ecosystem.
Stuart Hadley, COO at CyberQ Group, said:
“IT leaders and boards continually challenge assumptions made on cyber and data
security, and it’s this level of scrutiny and questioning that drives us on to create ever
more resilience in our cyber solutions. As a result, over decades, we have created the
benchmark standard for preventing data breaches, speed of response, and restoring
systems that organisations measure themselves against. We are delighted to be
involved and applying these standards with BCN and its partners.”
Ibrahim Dikko, CEO at BCN said;
