With a new generation comes more advanced,
useful technology, however, everything has a negative side effect .cybercrimes
have been occurring too often globally, starting from online theft to online
organ trade.                                                                                                                     Lebanon
isn’t as well introduced to the cyber applied science era as much as other
countries are due to its instability and the hold up in electing a new
president, however the Lebanese government set making the country more familiar
with cyber issues as a main aim and is putting in a significant amount of
effort to accomplish that aim. Authorities believe that the right starting
point was raising awareness towards the issue and it was achieved by
distributing a survey to almost 635 students, educators and managers which
included a questionnaire to test their apprehension regarding new technology.
The survey helped in collecting an overwhelming amount of data to acknowledge
the state of Lebanese citizens with cyber warfare which helped the
Telecommunications Regulatory Authorities in the process of buying new
equipment to be well resourced enough to train newbies in becoming cyber
experts. Furthermore, 2 anti-cyber-crime forums were conducted by “Al-Iktisad w
Al Aamal” which brought together over 500 professionals including bank
employees, IT workers, security experts and software developers to increase
their awareness about technology and how to work with it.                                                                                                                                                                    The
government is also working with the ministry of Telecommunications on the
expansion of networks and including the private sector in providing services
and the Euro-Mediterranean network of Regulators, which is an organization that
means To go about as a gathering for general dialogs and trades of data for its
Members on issues identifying with electronic correspondences in addition To
screening the improvement of the electronic interchanges in the Mediterranean
territory. Furthermore, Lebanon gave important bits of knowledge to the World
Summit on the Information Society, sorted out by the ITU and facilitated the
nineteenth International Conference on Telecommunications in 2012. All in all
the Lebanese government is trying to put in maximum effort to deal with this
issue since cyber warfare plays a huge role in the future even if some may not
see it.

 

 

   
II.           
Instituting Measures to Control and Monitor Illicit Flow of Small
Arms and Light Weapons:

Arms dealing has turned
into a critical reason for mishandling human rights; In actuality weapons are
exchanged for reasons of security, assurance, and self-protection, however,
they may once in a while be abused if they fall into the wrong hands and when
that happens, weapons will surely negatively affect advancement, peace,
affecting global security .       Lebanon
has suffered through a fifteen-year civil war which ended in 1990 however
Lebanon still struggles with the aftermath which was proven by the occurrence of
several clashes, a part of the aftermath, was the increase of rates of illegal
arms dealing. Considering that the sales widely dropped when the government
decided to fight against illegal arms dealing when it was on the rise for 2
years straight, this was the statement made by a Lebanese arms dealer when he was
arrested .he also stated that raids by the police were befalling too often and
gun dealers wouldn’t usually deal in periods with high rates of raids.                                                                With a new president in position,
Yacoub Sarraf the new minister of defense was hired, who set a rule that
obligates any gun shop to identify the name of the buyer, number of guns being
sold, and the criteria the gun falls under, each time a gun is purchased. This
law may be considered a simple one to other countries, yet in Lebanon this law
has never been introduced since the previous ministers of defense barley showed
any concern. Regarding the borders of Tripoli, they’re considered to be the
closest borders to Syria, which is why Syrian refugees use these borders to
travel into Lebanon. Many Syrian gun dealers were caught smuggling firearms
into Lebanon, the arrested gun dealers would get their weapons seized and a
prison sentence depending on the type and the amount of arms being smuggled,
this reduced the number of Syrian smugglers trying to sneak weapons through the
borders. Besides the fact that Lebanon is currently facing a lot of issues to resolve,
the government Is trying to fix each issue at a time.
