National Computer Board

The Government of Mauritius is fully conscious of the key role that the legal framework has to play in ensuring a healthy and sustainable development in the ICT industry. In this context, appropriate legislations on data security, protection of intellectual property rights and cyber crimes (Electronic Transaction Act, Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act, Data Protection Act etc) have been enacted to encourage the effective growth of the ICT sector.

The Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA) was set up under the Information and Communication Technologies Act of 2001, is the national regulator for the ICT sector, in particular telecommunications, use of the Internet and data protection. The ICTA also grants licenses to telecommunications operators.
