Professor Rasheed also proposed the integration of fingerprint authentication throughout the university system to tackle issues related to impersonation and campus security. He suggested that students’ biometric data could be sourced from the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board’s Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).

These recommendations were presented during Professor Rasheed’s 239th inaugural lecture at the University of Ilorin. Titled “Deconstructing The Crawling Mindsets: Combatting Security Challenges of Net-Centric Computing,” the lecture underscored the importance of addressing cybersecurity challenges within the digital landscape.

Professor Rasheed cautioned against lagging behind in the digital era, emphasizing the necessity of integrating information security management ethics, cybersecurity techniques, and reliable authentication measures to ensure secure operations, the sharing of information, and the prevention of cyber activities that compromise integrity.

He emphasized the need for advanced authentication methods to safeguard both card-based and card-less financial transactions, in order to curb financial fraud. Additionally, he called for focused research on security in Grid-based computing environments to maintain service quality.

Furthermore, Professor Rasheed urged the government to promote cultural adaptation to the emerging digital era by emphasizing the use of Nigerian languages. He advised organizations to engage expert professionals in the fields of information and cybersecurity, ensuring they receive continuous training to keep up with the evolving landscape of the discipline.
