Committee to combat cyber crime on cards

Government is going to form a joint committee comprising law enforcement agencies and Bangladesh Telecommunication Commission (BTRC) to combat cyber crimes.   
In this regard, BTRC has recently sent a proposal to the Prime Minister’s Office.
BTRC Secretary Sarwar Alam told The Independent that “We want to form a joint committee as we all are trying to ensure cyber security.”
After taking power in 2009, Awami League government put emphasis on the cyber security. Last year, it was widely discussed to formulate a technical system to detect cyber criminals, but no equipment has been procured yet.  
BTRC, however, said it will soon purchase the equipment to ensure secured cyberspace.
The commission said the objective to form the committee is to combat the crimes which are being conducted using social media, blog, and internet.
It is not possible to control the social platforms like Facebook and Twitter, said an official of BTRC.   
The regulatory commission also said it will collect information about the criminals to help law enforcing agencies through
forming the joint committee using modern technology.
Besides protecting the freedom of expression, speech, thinking and communication, the commission has been working to ensure sound social media in the country. BTRC is also helping other social media and common people to combat cyber crimes with its existing workfare and technical capacity.
