As at August 2017, Ghana had lost $69 million to cybercrime.  Similarly, the rate of Cybercrime increased causing the loss of $97 million.

According to findings, the computer-oriented crime is targeted at computer networks by either introducing viruses, malware and denial-of-service (DOS) attacks.

In the bid to curtail cybercrime in Ghana, the Criminal Investigative Department has begun a two-day workshop on cybercrime and electronic evidence.

The event, supported by the Conference of Western Attorneys General – African Alliance Partnership, CWAG-AAP is aimed at building the capacity of relevant stakeholders within the criminal justice system to effectively investigate and prosecute cyber relevant related crimes.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the training, the Director General of CID, COP Mame Yaa Tiwa Addo- Danquah says the proliferation of cyber-attack is causing increasing damage to companies, governments and individuals culminating in huge financial losses and other untold hardship to victims.

According to COP Tiwa Addo Danquah, a Cyber Security Report 2018 suggests cybercrimes will rise to $6 trillion annually by 2021. “This amount  encompasses everything from damage and destruction of sensitive data, stolen money, lost productivity, theft of intellectual property, theft of personal and financial data, embezzlement, fraud, post-attack disruption to business, forensic investigation, restoration and delete hacked data and systems”

60 trainees drawn from the Attorney General’s Department, BNI, EOCO and the Judiciary are expected to undergo the training which ends on 28th of May, 2018
