The Ministry of Communications has launched the China-Aided Satellite Television project for 300 villages in Ghana at a ceremony in Akweibu, a community in the Ablekuma West Constituency in the Greater Accra Region.
As Ghana takes steps to protect its cyber space and also facilitate stronger bilateral cooperation on cyber issues, the Minister for Communications Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, led a delegation to the National Cyber security Communications and Integration Centre in the United States of America for a strategic meeting.
Cybercrime, popularly known as ‘sakawa’, has become one of the most heard of crimes in the country as a result of the availability of the internet. People hide behind the computer with the aid of internet to commit all sorts of crimes, including identity theft and invasion of privacy, ATM fraud, counterfeiting and forgery.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says his government intends, in the next few months, to establish a National Cyber Security Centre, as has been done in some other countries, to liaise with relevant state agencies and the private sector to oversee cyber security operations at the national level.
