Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, has reaffirmed Government’s commitment to strengthen its cybersecurity capacity to protect sensitive information held on public-sector information technology (IT) platforms.
Addressing Chief Executive Officers and Heads of IT departments in the public sector at a Cyber and Data Security conference, held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in Kingston on July 1, Dr. Wheatley said as part of that determination, the administration will be launching a cybersecurity public-awareness campaign this month.
He said the Government considers cybersecurity a high priority, and the campaign will be sustained over four months from July to October 2016, when Cybersecurity Month will be observed.
