Around 5000 cyber crimes reported in Kuwait a year

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Kuwait is exposed to about 5,000 cyber crimes a year, local media reported quoting the Information Security and Cybercrime Advisor, Colonel Raed Al-Roumi. However, most of these are not referred to the court due to the difficulty of proving the charges.

He stressed on the need to put in place a mechanism to track down the flow of information and analyze it to control any electronic threat, especially in light of the desire to turn Kuwait into a commercial and financial center, which requires infrastructure, databases and technical solutions to address any risk.

He also criticized some parents who treat technology as entertainment for children and this is one of the reasons why a child at the age of three is allowed to use iPad.
