According to him, those engaged in cyber crime activities are always improving upon their modus operandi insisting that, it is only stronger systems that could counter and triumph over them.

For instance, Ghana's cyber security machinery should be linked to the Information Communication Technology Department of the Parliament of Ghana believing that, would contribute in curbing the menace.

"As we move towards a cashless economy, there is the need to build stronger systems to counter cyber crime. This is very important as we develop as a country", he noted.
