The Minister of Technology, Phillip Paulwell, says he’s concerned about the increase in the number of cybercrimes cases in the island.

Minister Paulwell says that in 2011 there were only 19 reported cases of cyber crimes.

Government websites were attacked by hackers in December last year and again in June this year.

Minister Paulwell says the country’s network security will be boosted through the National Cyber Security Strategy, which was launched earlier this year.
