In today’s tech-based world, everything is online, and a security breach could prove to be catastrophic

The Digital Bangladesh vision has become a cornerstone in our development journey, one that has helped us to set goals and achieve them, and one that will continue to be more and more relevant as Bangladesh takes the next logical steps in its short-term and long-term economic plans.

To that end, as the country becomes more digital, it is important that our cyber-space is not compromised, and that we re-main alert and ready should any nefarious parties decide to try and take advantage through cyber threats and attack.

Worryingly, that is precisely what has happened; as reported by BGD e-GOV CIRT, the e-Government computer incident response team and Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC), over 200 organizations in Bangladesh were hit by cyber attacks, which are being attributed to an international hacker group, reportedly based out of China.

It cannot be stressed enough just how much of a priority it should be for the government and all relevant stakeholders and authorities concerned to fortify our cyberspace to the best of our abilities.

There is zero room for complacency on an issue as important as this. In today’s tech-based world, everything is online, and a security breach could prove to be catastrophic, not only monetarily, but also in terms of classified information being leaked and people’s privacies threatened.

We have already seen Bangladesh suffering as a result of these attacks. We simply cannot let such attacks become a norm, and now is the time to get serious with securing our cyberspace.
