(TAP) – Nearly 80 thousand attempts to hack electronic sites have been registered in the past three months, said Director General of the National Agency for Computer Security (ANSI), Mohamed Naoufel Frikha.

Speaking on Thursday, at the eighth edition of Cyber Security Days (25 and 26 October), Frikha warned against cyber attacks through webcams or coding data.

He said ANSI is working to set up sector centres specialising in IT security, such as banking centres and the Ministry of Social Affairs.

According to the ranking of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Tunisia ranks 40th in the world and 4th in terms of cybernetics.

In turn, Minister of Communication Technologies and Digital Economy, Anouar Maarouf stressed that his department is working to set up a platform to detect denial of service attacks, before the end of 2018.

He further recalled that the services under his department are currently working on the development of the new digital code which will replace the communications code.
