  • Poor governance and massive unemployment in Nigeria: as causes of brain
           drain in the Buhari administration (2015-2020)

    • Abstract: Like other African countries of the developing world, Nigeria underperforms due to a lack of state capacity to deal with the present-day complexities of governance, thereby leading to poor governance, massive unemployment, and brain drain in the Buhari administration. Poor governance is the absence of good governance. Close observation of governance in Nigeria indicates a poor attempt at democratic consideration and unstable politics thereby leading to a battered economy, impoverishment of citizens, corruption, mismanagement of public funds, infrastructure decay leading to massive unemployment which results in human capital flight, a barrier to Nigeria’s quest for consolidating democracy, As a result of visionless leaders, selfish, nepotic, mediocrates, tribalistic and opportunist in the political space of the country. This paper examines the electionary campaign promises of the Buhari administration on security for all citizens, bumper economy, and anti-corruption, with the analysis of secondary data, it examines the relationship between poor governance, massive unemployment, and brain drain in Nigeria from 2015 to 2020, adopting the relative deprivation of frustration-aggression theory to x-ray the concepts of poor governance and massive unemployment, resulting to human capital flight. This study has identified poor governance and massive unemployment leading to brain drain in this administration and made valuable recommendations.

  • Ransomware: a comprehensive study of the exponentially increasing
           cybersecurity threat

    • Abstract: Ransomware threats and incidents have exponentially increased causing both financial and reputational losses to organizations of all sizes and sectors. Ransomware attacks became the talk of the news when the world was hit by COVID 19 pandemic and people shifted to remote work in large numbers (Brynjolfsson et al., 2020, p. 13-14). Cybercriminals and threat groups are using various types of social engineering techniques such as email phishing, smishing, spear phishing attacks to spread ransomware infections in systems and networks. To protect organizations, users, and IT infrastructures it is important to understand how ransomware works, and how various threat actors use it to exfiltrate confidential data and information. Hence a critical approach toward ransomware infection and its mitigation by using different techniques is discussed and analyzed in this research paper concerning other scholarly articles and papers.

  • Security of European critical infrastructures outside the European Union:
           a review of the Western Balkans national laws

    • Abstract: From the very beginning of the 21st century, the European Union took measures to develop a common security framework for critical infrastructure protection and to harmonize measures and standards between states. European critical infrastructures should be determined from the national critical infrastructure, which implies the regulations / rules for critical infrastructure protection are an important factor in European security and national laws. The paper examines the representation and impact of the provisions of DIRECTIVE 2008/114 / EC in the specific laws for security and protection of European critical infrastructures outside the European Union. In the Western Balkans, four specific laws were adopted setting out national frameworks for the establishment of critical infrastructure protection frameworks. The results of the analysis are based on the incorporation and implementation of the suggested common European Union approach for critical infrastructure protection in the national legislations of Western Balkan countries.Keywords: European critical infrastructures, security, national laws, Western Balkans.

  • Work after retirement: the evidence of sustainable employment from
           Lithuanian enterprise

    • Abstract: While the population is ageing fast in Lithuania the possible ways of adaptation of older people in labour market should be analysed thoroughly. A small private company operating in the sector of electric installation was selected as a case. Analysis was aimed to reveal the main sector-specific enterprise-level factors for participation in labour market after the official retirement age. Paper presents both employee’s and employer’s perspectives on sustainable employment. The case study presents the experience of the 72 years old electrician and the employer’s undertakings to encourage older workers to continue their careers. The data from the micro-level are analysed within the socio-economic context of the country. The case study shows that a long career is probable when both the business and the employees benefit from it, and the employee’s health condition is satisfying. From the employer’s perspective, the benefits derived from the employment of the high-skilled, experienced, and reliable workers; and from the older employee’s perspective, such aspects as self-realisation and favourable conditions at the workplace have a great value.

  • The role of entrepreneurship and innovation in the environmental and
           economic dimensions of growth

    • Abstract: This study is mainly performed to examine the effects of renewable energy, entrepreneurial activity, and innovation on GDP and CO2 emissions in 13 European countries from 2002 to 2017. The estimation of the feasible generalized least square (FGLS) method shows that the share of renewable energy consumption in accordance with the total energy consumption, entrepreneurial activity, and innovation, defined by the number of patents, increases the economic growth but inversely decreases CO2 emission. The share of research & development expenditure to GDP lowers the CO2 emission without having any impact on the economy. With reference to these results, a set of implications are deduced, specifically for policymakers. The substitution of renewable energy and the encouragement of innovative entrepreneurs to undertake green businesses are essential to attain the objectives of sustainable development.
