Parliament has been asked to operationalise cyber laws to improve security and integrity in the electronic business environment.
"The purpose of these laws was to guide and regulate the information and communication technology sector so as to create a conducive environment for doing business using electronic means.
"However, to date it is not operational," Dr. Peter Ngategize, the investment strategy secretariat national coordinator in the finance ministry, said.
In 2010, Parliament passed into law the electronic transactions and electronic signature bill to improve the regulations and security of electronic transactions and devices.
"There is an increasing rate of online fraud because the electronic transactions and electronic signature bill is not functioning, which has affected the privacy and authenticity of information and communication users and beneficiaries," Ngategize said at the Uganda Law Reform Commission Business Conference at the Commonwealth Resort, Munyonyo last week.
The law will help in providing legal regulations for the use of electronic device
