The Barbados government yesterday announced plans to establish a national cyber security strategy to provide the island of Barbados with “a robust cyber defence” as it seeks to deal with crime.

According to the Jamaica Observer, Attorney General, Adriel Brathwaite, addressing the first annual conference of the Department of Public Prosecutions, said the new framework would include a revision and renovation of legislation to provide the required security.

He told delegates at the conference that is being held under the theme “Strengthening our Capacity to Combat Cybercrimes and Other organised Crimes” that the new strategy would involve work on the Computer Misuse Act, the Electronics Transactions Act, the Telecommunications Act and the Copyright Act.
