The Meteorological Services Department National Climate Outlook Forum’s virtual meeting on the 2020/21 agricultural season weather forecast was hacked forcing the meeting to be halted for about 10 minutes.

It is reported that the hacker played adult material during the meeting something which raised concerns for secure virtual platforms as well as expedition of the Cyber Security Bill.

Mr Munesu Munodawafa, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry apologized for the unusual encounter and also enforcement of the Cyber Security Bill.

We had to break the Zoom virtual meeting following the posting of offensive adult material during the meeting by some unidentified hackers.

Government seriously needs to expedite passage of the Cyber Security Bill. We need to create secure virtual platforms where Government business is conducted.
