Saturday, 04 13 2019, Category: Technology, Country: Lebanon
Interior Minister Raya El Hassan said Tuesday that the state must cooperate with Cabinet ministries and civil society actors to enhance its cybersecurity capabilities, during a conference on cybersecurity.
“While the internet has eased personal and financial transactions, at the same time it has allowed new types of crimes using the internet to surface, which sometimes lead to paralyzing sensitive sectors, in ways that threaten national security,” Hassan said at the event, according to a series of tweets.
The minister said that to achieve a healthy presence of cybersecurity, there must be cooperation between the country’s military and security agencies as well.
Cyberspace must be protected from all kinds of attacks, she stressed, through enacting initiatives to limit technological dangers facing both the public and the private sectors.
Hassan praised the efforts of the Internal Security Forces and its Information Branch in combating cybercrime and terrorism in all fields.
