Amity Law School, Noida in collaboration with National Commission for Women is delighted to host National Webinar on the theme of “Harassment of Women in Digital Space” on Thursday, October 22nd, 2020 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
In the digital age, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is benefiting billions across the world by bridging certain gaps and multiplying human potential in every walk of life. However, digital space has opened doors to cyber criminals and mostly women are their target.
Millions of women and girls around the world are subjected to deliberate violence because of their gender. Violence against women (VAW) knows no boundaries, cutting across borders, race, culture and income groups, profoundly harming victims, people around them, and society as a whole.
The growing reach of the Internet, ICTs and the wide diffusion of social media have presented new opportunities and enabled various efforts to address VAW. However, they are also being used as tools to inflict harm on women. Cyber-VAW is emerging as a global problem with serious implications for societies and economies around the world.
The National Commission for Women has strived for secure protection of women through suitable policy formulation, legislative measures, and effective enforcement of laws. They proposed a scheme for Cyber Crime Prevention against Women and Children (CCWC) which has been formulated by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Some of the inputs put forth include Online Women specific Crime Reporting Unit, Monitoring Unit for Cyber Crimes, National Forensic Laboratory, and Capacity Building.
The webinar is aimed to bring together some of the most distinguished luminaries who are professionals responsible for combating varied forms of cyber-crimes to provide practical information, using current statistics, newest ideas, and most successful intervention strategies.
The attendees for the webinar have been invited from around the country and, they will be presented with an online e-certificate for the webinar.
