Prompt move: Hun Many urges greater awareness to fight cybercrime | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

Minister of Civil Service Hun Many said that to fight cybercrime everyone needs an increased understanding of cyber security, so individuals and private institutions as well as the government understand how to prevent cyberattacks.

“We need to focus on promoting, disseminating and spreading awareness about cyber security. We must fight cybercrime, online fraud and other online related crimes,” Many said.

“We must learn the key to protecting ourselves from attacks on the public, as well as the government and private institutions in Cambodia,” he said.

Many, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister, made the remarks on Saturday while presiding over the second Cambodia 4.0 Forum under the theme “Cyber Security” at CamTech University in Phnom Penh on Saturday.

Many encourages technology users to understand how to protect themselves online and encourages the private sector to develop a cyber-security strategy for their organisations.

In a meeting on Friday in Sihanoukville, Interior Minister Sar Sokha also urged the Preah Sihanouk Provincial Administration and all authorities to ensure security and public order in the province and suppress all crimes committed by foreigners.

In the past few years, Sihanoukville has been a hotspot for online job scams.

Sokha encouraged all authorities in the province to continue to investigate and crack down on all crimes, especially those committed by foreigners.

This came as late last month, The Indian Express, an Indian English-language newspaper, reported that the India’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) held a meeting with officials of the country’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity), the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) and other security experts to plan a strategy to rescue Indians trapped in Cambodia.

The unverified report that 5,000 Indians are trapped and forced to work for online scamming syndicates in Cambodia has prompted the MHA to conduct an investigation to uncover the truth, despite its questionable essence.

Meanwhile, India’s Ministry of External Affairs released a statement on Thursday, advising Indian nationals travelling to Cambodia for employment to be aware of the online scams.

“It has come to attention that Indian nationals, lured by fake promises of lucrative job opportunities in Cambodia, are falling into the trap of human traffickers. These Indian nationals are coerced to undertake online financial scams and other illegal activities,” it said.

Indian nationals intending to visit Cambodia for employment are cautioned to do so only through authorised agents. It is also advised that the background of the prospective employer in Cambodia is checked thoroughly, it added.

“In the meantime, the Ministry of External Affairs, through our Mission in Phnom Penh, is working closely with the Cambodian authorities to address the issue as well as provide continuous assistance to the affected Indian nationals,” it said.
