Stakeholders in the Telecom Industry are pushing for the regulator to deepen cybersecurity policy discussions as part of moves to scale up successful digital payment solutions.
It is estimated that Ghana lost 97 million dollars to cybercrime in 2018 alone.
General Manager for MTN MOMO, Eli Hene thus called on the regulator to increase talks on cybersecurity to provide stability in the sector.
“To deepen the discussions around cybersecurity policy, it has become very important now; the government has been talking about it.
As we go digital, it’s an area that we need to put our minds to and invest to ensure that across all industries that get departed there is sufficient understanding, sufficient investment and we can ensure some standardisation so that we do not have different standards applied to different procedures,” he said.
