November 29, 2023

Electronic National Identity Cards (eNICs) serve as digital counterparts to traditional IDs, offering convenience and verification on mobile devices. They simplify processes like bank account openings and license renewals, but their integration into centralized systems raises Cybersecurity concerns. Protecting citizen data from evolving cyber threats through legislation is vital for financial institutions and digital services. In the Cybersecurity landscape, discussions should be initiated at the board level to deter cybercriminal interest. While total prevention is challenging, being a less appealing target is key. Caution is urged with messaging app links and online quizzes to prevent data theft. Responsible online behavior is fundamental in securing your digital presence.
