Inauguration of 4TH Anti Cybercrime Forum Under Salameh's Patronage

29 Nov 2018

Lebanon - The 4th Anti-Cybercrime Forum was held Thursday under the auspices of the Lebanese Central Bank Governor Riyad Salameh and in presence of hundreds of delegates representing the judiciary and security authorities, representatives from ministries, relevant government institutions and legal authorities, as well as local and international banking experts, and representatives of technology companies specialized in the fight against cybercrime.

The forum was organized by Al-Iktissad Wal-Aamal Group in cooperation with the Special Investigation Commission and the Office for Combating Cybercrime and Protection of Intellectual Property at the Directorate General of the Internal Security Forces.

Speaking at the Forum's opening session, Salameh indicated that preparations to launch Lebanon's digital currency were underway, noting that this currency is not a virtual one like Bitcoin.

"The digital currency will be issued by the Central Bank in Lebanese pound and using it will be strictly local. Its purpose is to facilitate payment methods and activate financial technology," Salameh explained.

Moreover, he indicated that the Central Bank and the concerned authorities were looking forward to tracking down and fighting cybercrimes.

For his part, ISF Chief General Imad Othman maintained that his institution was working on providing cybersecurity.

"We have devised the needed plans to face cybercrimes and we have determined the administrative, logistic and human requirements to venture into plans' implementation in 2019," he said.
