Macau government proposes cyber security bill

The Executive Council announced Tuesday that the government has drafted a bill on cyber security which proposes the mandatory implementation of real-name registration for the provision of telecom services – i.e., customers will be required to provide their real identification data to telecom service operators, including for the purchase of a pre-paid SIM card.

Concerning the pre-paid SIM cards purchased before the new cyber security law comes into force in the future, the cards’ users will also have to provide their identification data after the new law comes into force, according to the bill.

Leong Heng Teng, spokesman for the government’s top advisory body, made the announcement during a press conference at Government Headquarters yesterday.
