Cybercrime policies/strategies

Fiji does not have an officially recognized national cybercrime strategy/policy, but it is part of some regional initiatives on related topics like the Pacific ICT Ministers meetings, or the Pacific Regional CIRT (PacCERT).

In June 2010, the meeting of Pacific Ministers for information and communication technologies adopted the “Tonga Declaration” which, among other things, called for “developing appropriate policy, legislative and regulatory frameworks and strategies to combat cybercrime and promote Internet safety and security, including child online protection“.

Fiji’s National Development Plan, approved by the Government in November 2017, identifies cyber safety and cybercrime as high-priority areas for the next 5 years and proposes completion of a cyber security framework and policy by the end of 2018.
