Tunisia to tighten ‘net security

The Tunisian government will tighten its internet security after recent breaches.

The websites of Tunisian Interim Government ministries, as well as the Tunisian Prime Minister’s e-mail account and the Ministry of Justice website have been targeted by hackers recently.

Sophos reported in January that members of the Anonymous grouping had gathered online to single out Tunisian sites for attack.

Describing the situation as 'a constant battle', the National Agency for Computer Security reports that it is restructuring systems to improve the government’s ICT security.
