CTO, Fiji Republic partner on cybersecurity

The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) and the Republic of Fiji are partnering for the development of a cybersecurity strategy for Fiji which could be used as a model framework for other Pacific island nations, reports ITRealms.
This was part of the outcome of the CTO Forum 2015 held in Nairobi, Kenya on 14 - 16 September 2015.
ITRealms reports that the growth of cyber criminality and cyberterrorism has become a major concern for the global community, and countries are adopting different strategies to address this, just as Nigeria last May 15, signed its Cybercrime Law into effect.
Honourable Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, the Attorney-General and Minister for Communications Fiji Republic, noted that they are committed to doing their part to ensure a safer cyberspace for all.
“Working with the CTO will assist us in establishing the right national frameworks and in allocating the right level of resources to address criminal activities in cyberspace that originate in our country and collaborate with the international community as needed,” he said.
Sayed-Khaiyum further reiterated that as the regional hub for Information and Communication Technology (ICTs) in the South Pacific, it was important for Fiji to share its experiences and knowledge with its neighbours to help build regional capacity in cybersecurity.
ITRealms reports that CTO has been assisting other Commonwealth countries such as Botswana and Cameroon in adopting their national cybersecurity strategy.
