In Morocco, the Director General of National Security, Abdellatif Hammouchi, held his annual orientation speech in mid-December 2022, addressed to the various heads of security services. In it, he identified a list of priorities for 2023, most of them related to digital technology.
In particular, he insisted on “the need to expand institutional partnerships that allow the use of digital identity applications” in order to better fight fraud. He also called for “the securing, simplification, and digitization” of public services.
Abdellatif Hammouchi has also made the fight against fake news and violent content online a national priority. At the same time, he wants to strengthen public communication on these subjects to limit their anxiety-provoking impact.
