Mauritius to introduce tougher Cybersecurity and Cybercrime law

Published

on

A new Cybersecurity and Cybercrime Bill will be introduced in parliament next week to provide for prosecution of crimes committed by internet users on online applications or platforms.

The new bill will reportedly be compliant with the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime. The bill will repeal the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act.

According to Oct 23 Cabinet papers, the legislation will be more compliant with the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime through the provision of additional criminal offences related to cybercrime and cybersecurity, improved investigation techniques and increased international cooperation.

The new law is also set to:

  • Implement a Critical Information Infrastructure Protection policy,
  • Establish a National Cybersecurity Committee; and
  • Provide for international cooperation and mutual legal assistance in cybercrime matters.
