Ursula Owusu Calls For Robust Cybersecurity Infrastructure
The Minister for Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has highlighted the need to involve the private sector in the fight against cybercrime.
According to the Minister, cybercrime is not only experienced by the public sector and therefore the involvement of private sector players in various committees set up to combat the menace will help address the issue across all sectors of the economy.
The Minister has called for the development of robust cybersecurity infrastructure, with a caution of the possible damage lack of it can cause. “We cannot sustain our digitalisation efforts without cybersecurity. Cyber-attacks could undermine our gains in digitalisation as well as our social and economic well-being and consequently, impact on our national security,” she said.
Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, who was speaking at the inauguration of the Joint Cybersecurity Committee (JCC) on Thursday, July 14, 2022, added: “In order to achieve a secure and resilient digital economy, each one of us will have to play our part.
She made the comments in an engagement with the media at the inauguration of an 18-member committee of the Cybersecurity Authority.
