Children

COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of digital platforms to support children’s learning, socialization and play. Despite the benefits derived from the use of the internet by children, it has also made it easier for online predators to access, groom, abuse and exploit children and young adults. Reports indicates that child sexual abuse material being accessed, distributed or produced increased from 750 to 7,000 between 2016 to 2019 respectively in Ghana. This trend has necessitated the need to intensify awareness on cybercrime and cybersecurity best practices for children and young adults nationwide. The National Cyber Security Awareness Month, 2020 organised by the National Cyber Security Centre through the Ministry of Communications will assemble key stakeholders to help children and young adults understand the risks on the internet.

Statistics gathered through the national cyber security centre (NCSC) cybercrime/cybersecurity incident reporting points of contact indicates that online fraud, online impersonation and publication of non-consensual intimate images are the prevalent cybercrime incidents reported by the general public.
