The Centre for Cyber Awareness and Development (CECAD) is an advocacy, public education and development non-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO) established and incorporated in June 2015 with Nigeria’s Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), in Abuja. The overall aim of CECAD is to promote cyber responsibility by Internet users at the local, regional, national and international levels. Through advocacy and public education, CECAD seeks to affect global affairs positively in its attempt at modifying ‘cyber behaviour’ of Internet users through diverse platforms.
The Centre, therefore, shall adopt effective communication, in form of strategically-constructed messages, as the weapon of choice in order to change people’s actions and behaviours. They strategically construct messages to not only shape behavior, but to also socially mobilize communities in promoting social, political, or environmental changes. Cyber Africa Magazine, published by Transatlantic Media Company Limited, Lagos, is a product and official publication of the Centre.
