New Internet laws on the cards
LEGISLATION AIMED SPECIFICALLY at cybercrime may soon be coming for Barbados.
Minister of Commerce and Small Business Development Donville Inniss said today that his ministry would be developing the framework for a Cybercrime Act this year.
He told a Government-sponsored e-commerce seminar at Bagnall’s Point Gallery in Pelican Village that crime involving computers and the Internet remained one of the greatest concerns for businesses.
Inniss also voiced concern about people using social media to spread “the nastiest” and “most untrue” reports about fellow Barbadians, and warned that the state would do what was necessary to tackle the perpetrators. (TY)
