Home Ministry advises states to set up cyber crime co-ordination cells, deep monitoring of the web

Home Ministry asks states to maintain database of suspects to fight cyber crime

The Centre has asked states to strengthen institutional mechanisms and “maintain data of suspects” in order to tackle cyber crime, racial abuse and communal propaganda online, The Indian Express reported on Tuesday.

Ministry of Home Affairs Joint Secretary Kumar Alok sent a notice to the states and Union territories on January 13 in which he mentioned an eight-point guideline to prevent and detect such crimes, and also strengthen the tools that will help investigators. The ministry suggested “deep monitoring of web” and asked states to monitor social media “with due emphasis on vernacular content”.

Alok, in his advisory note, urged states to hire experts in information technology, mobile telephony, digital forensics and cyber law and set up cyber-crime coordination cells at the state and district levels, the Deccan Herald reported. Authorities should also launch awareness campaigns advising people about practices – such as

Ministry to add guidelines for teachers to punish cyber bullies

PUNISHMENTS for cyber bullying are among new additions into the disciplinary guidelines for teachers.

Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan said the guidelines were being improved and updated.

“In the past, it did not touch on cyber bullying. Perhaps we can now include it so teachers can deal with students involved in such problems,” he told a press conference at SJK (T) Gelang Patah today.

Kamalanathan said society was facing cyber bullying cases and the ministry did not want this to affect school children.

Apart from punishments for cyber bullies, there will also be several other additions to the guideline, he said.

Kamalanathan said minister Mahdzir Khalid had also given his input for the guideline improvements.

“We will follow all the procedures in introducing the new punishments. It is important, as it involves students,” he said. 

Last Wednesday, the National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) called on the ministry to provide new guidelines for teachers to

Cyber security ministry was long overdue

Herbert Marufu Correspondent
President Mugabe reassigned 10 ministers and made eight new appointments in a Cabinet reshuffle on Monday. Former Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa was assigned to head the Ministry of Cyber Security, Threat Detection and Mitigation. The new ministry is mandated to deal with the growing abuse of the Internet.

Cyber threats are increasing at an alarming rate every year and the ability for organisations and countries to defend themselves against full-scale distributed attacks quickly and effectively is becoming more and more difficult. In order to be safe and secure on today’s Internet, organisations must learn to become more automated. This means being capable of characterising attacks across hundreds or even thousands of IP sessions and improving their ability to recognise attack commonalities.

With intrusion detection systems and trained network security auditors in place, organisations and nations have a reliable means to prioritise, and isolate only the most critical threats in real

Zimbabwe’s Mugabe creates cyber ministry in cabinet reshuffle

HARARE (Reuters) – Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe moved Patrick Chinamasa from the finance ministry on Monday to lead a new cyber security ministry that will focus on crimes on social media and other websites ahead of an election due next year.

Chinamasa will be replaced at the treasury by Home Affairs Minister Ignatius Chombo in a cabinet reshuffle that also diminished the role of Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, seen as a potential successor to Mugabe.

Chombo’s move, announced in a government statement, comes against the backdrop of a severe hard currency shortage that has dealt a fresh blow to confidence and investment in the southern African economy, which uses the U.S dollar.

Chinamasa was appointed finance minister after Mugabe’s re-election in 2013 and his move to head the new Ministry of Cyber Security, Threat Detection and Mitigation was unexpected.

Its creation comes after Chinamasa said last month the government would
