Oropouche East MP, Roodal Moonilal says the time has come for the introduction of a national cyber security centre to deal with crime, criminality, and cybercrimes.
His comment comes on the heels of recent cyber attacks at TSTT, Courts, PriceSmart and the SWRHA.
He says this is not the last time companies will be hacked, but one has to be prepared to fight against such attacks rather than wait until data is stolen before reacting.
According to Moonilal, the centre would not be just for monitoring data, but to co-ordinate and respond quickly in a crisis to reduce damage and risk.
This centre, he says, could be a point of contact for all organisations that face cyber attacks.
