A committee tasked with creating Lebanon's cybersecurity strategy expects to present its recommendations -- including the creation of a national cybersecurity agency -- to Parliament in five months, according to National ICT Strategy Coordinator Lina Oueidat. Speaking at Lebanon's first International Conference on Big Data and Cybersecurity Intelligence on Dec. 13, Oueidat said among the committee's recommendations was the creation of a "National Agency for Information Service Security" that would be responsible for addressing cybercrime. The lack of a single agency in charge of cybersecurity is one of the reasons why Lebanon ranks 119th on the Global Cybersecurity Index of 2017, Oueidat said.Oueidat said the strategy that the committee is crafting will focus on ensuring greater coordination between different government bodies to address cybersecurity issues in Lebanon.
