The month-long event, which was first launched in 2017, seeks to intensify the capacity building and awareness creation efforts on cybercrime/cybersecurity through the National Cybersecurity Awareness Programme dubbed, A Safer Digital Ghana.



The NCSAM 2020 event will be conducted in a hybrid format which will comprise physical engagements (under strict COVID-19 protocols) and the utilisation of available virtual platforms and media channels. It will involve thought-leadership sessions, workshops, lectures, demonstrations, training sessions, and media engagements. These programmes will focus on awareness creation on cybersecurity best practices targeting the four (4) main thematic areas covering the Safer Digital Ghana campaign namely, Children, Public, Businesses and Government.

The event will see the participation of the Minister for Communications, Deputy Ministers for Communications, Ministers and Deputy Ministers from the National Cyber Security Inter-Ministerial Advisory Council (NCSIAC), the National Cybersecurity Advisor, members of the National Cyber Security Technical Working Group (NCSTWG), representatives from government and non-government institutions as well as private sector organisations among others.

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.

Public

In 2018 Ghana lost $97 million to cybercrime activities. 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. The national cyber security awareness month, 2020 organised by the National Cyber Security Centre through the Ministry of Communications will have specific events targeted at sensitizing Ghanaians on these issues.

Businesses

COVID-19 pandemic has increased the use of digital platforms for the facilitation and coordination of business activities across the country. This has increased cybercrime activities such as phishing attacks, ransomware attacks, impersonation among others. To help business build resilience and develop counter measures on these issues, the National Cyber Security Awareness Month, 2020 is being organised by the National Cyber Security Centre through the Ministry of Communications to have direct engagement with businesses community nationwide.

Government

The ravaging effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed Government institutions and officials to increase engagements with their publics via digital platforms.

It is against this background, that the National Cyber Security Awareness Month, 2020 is being organised by the National Cyber Security Centre through the Ministry of Communications to intensify awareness on cybercrime and cybersecurity best practices targeted at Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs). A host of activities on cyber hygiene best practices approach in the working environment for staff of government institutions will be conducted during the month.
