Governments in the Caribbean are being warned to heighten their online security measures.
The warning came from James Bynoe, the chief executive officer for the Caribbean Cyber Security Centre, who is pointing to increasing attacks by cyber criminals.
It comes two weeks after several cyber attacks were reported in Barbados and the Cayman Islands.
Bynoe said cyber criminals will become a major problem for the region because of the increasing skill of hackers and the growing resources available to use in committing cyber crimes.
He said this is not an issue that can be solved by one organisation or individual countries and suggested that regional governments pull together to ensure that the Caribbean ICT sectors are protected.
