The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has again assured Nigerians that their data are safe and have not been compromised.

The commission, in a statement on Saturday, also said it did not authorise any website or entity to sell or misuse the National Identification Number (NIN) of Nigerians as claimed by a report.

It also said idfinder.com.ng; Verify; Ng/sign in; championtech.com.ng; trustyonline.com and anyverify.com were data harvesters not authorised by NIMC to access or manage sensitive data.

The statement reads in part: “NIMC urges the public to disregard any claims or services these websites offer and should not give their data as they are potentially fraudulent, and data provided by the public on such websites are gathered and stored to build the data services they illegally provide.

“Consequently, the public should know that the commission has taken robust measures to safeguard the nation’s database from cyber threats – a secure, world-class, full-proof database is in place.”

NIMC’s Head of Media, Kayode Adegoke, explained that the commission’s infrastructure met the stringent ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System Standard, with annual recertification and strict compliance with the Nigerian Data Protection Law.
