He added that as cybercrime is on the rise, the use of technology needs to be increased in crime detection in every police station across the country.
Jabbar also said that the families need to further emphasise on raising awareness about cybercrime.
In a programme on the tendency of cybercrime in Bangladesh, marking the 6th anniversary of the Cyber Crime Awareness Foundation (CCAF), the minister said that in the name of freedom of speech, social networking companies like Facebook and YouTube do not provide information against 60 per cent of the requests made by the Bangladesh government.
Not even 1 per cent of the parents use the parental control services of the digital devices, he added.
However, the situation has improved after 2018, Jabbar said, adding, "Before 2018, we did not have any communication with the social networking companies and they only addressed about 1 per cent of our complaints. Now, it has increased to 35-40 per cent."
The minister further said that the government can now get in touch with the social media companies every week, but still there are many gaps in the communication process which need to be addressed.
Additional superintendent of police (forensic) of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), Mostofa Kamal Rashed, said the government is formulating cyber monitoring cells in every district to ensure cybersecurity.
Highlighting the findings of a research report, Monira Nazmi Jahan, convener of the CCAF Research Cell, said that account hacking is one of the prevailing cybercrimes in the country, with a rate of 28.31 per cent.
Spreading misinformation using social media is in second position with a rate of 16.31 per cent and threatening through online platforms is in third position, she added.
