აბსტრაქტი. Information security is the exercise of protecting information by means of mitigating information threats and risks by averting or decreasing the probability of inappropriate or unauthorized access to data, or the unlawful usage, exposure, disruption, erasure, corruption, alteration, assessment, recording, or devaluation of information. It similarly encompasses actions planned to decrease the adversarial effects of such incidents. Information security's prime goal is the protection of the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of data for efficient policy implementation, and without obstructing the productivity and development of the organization. An effective information security strategy would be the best measure to adopt to tackle the insecurity challenges faced by Nigeria which as well obstructs its potential to drive sustainable national security and development. This study defines those effective information security measures and strategies to be adopted as a tool to attain the desired said information security goal. This paper concludes that these measures and strategies will be effective for sustainable Nigerian national security and development. Nevertheless, this study provides recommendations that will enhance sustainable Nigerian national development by adopting these information security measures.
