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.
The Speaker made this observation when a delegation led by the Executive Director of Center for Cyber Watch and Data Protection paid a courtesy call on him.
Commenting further on the issue, Rt. Hon. Bagbin said there is also the need to work on the mindset of Ghanaians and as well raise awareness in order to bring change.
