Principal Secretary of the State Department of Interior Security and National Administration, Dr. Raymond Omollo, has called on the technical team responsible for formulating Kenya’s cybercrime regulations to prioritize public opinions.
Dr. Omollo emphasized the need to create a safe, secure, and user-friendly cyberspace that fosters innovation and creativity among Kenyans.
As the chair of the National Computer and Cybercrime Coordination Committee (NC4), he presided over a meeting with the taskforce members to assess the progress of drafting the regulations required to implement the Computer Misuse and Cybercrimes Act (CMCA) of 2018.
During the meeting, Dr. Omollo emphasized the significance of incorporating diverse perspectives from the public in shaping the forthcoming regulations.
By involving citizens in the drafting process, the government aims to ensure that the regulatory framework effectively addresses cybercrime and technology misuse while also promoting an environment that encourages innovation and creativity.
The inclusion of public opinions is expected to contribute to the development of a safe and secure cyberspace that meets the needs and aspirations of the Kenyan population.
The technical team will work closely with stakeholders and experts to ensure that the drafted regulations align with international best practices and local requirements, ultimately fostering a thriving digital landscape in the country.
