National Cyber Security Center and re-registration of SIM cards were prominent issues at the ongoing National Cyber Security Week.

The celebration is strategically selected to coincide the global Cyber Security Awareness month, which is being celebrated throughout October.


It is designed to create awareness of cyber security and how to protect systems and citizens from cyber attacks as the country undertakes a vigorous digital agenda under the mantra "it's digi-time in Ghana".

Vincent Sowah Odotei in an interview on Accra-based Starr FM said government will ensure the re-registration works.

He urged leading telecom operators to do more in order to ensure customers comply with the requirement to re-register their SIM cards.

He said "We have learned our lessons and I can assure you that we will make sure we roll out a system that is sustainable, that is resilient and that will address the needs that we want, we are not going to go to the relapse system that happened the last time, never."
