AS part of the plan to reform the Guyana Police Force, 27 ranks in ‘G’ Division (Essequibo Coast, Essequibo Islands) on Monday, April 8, 2019, benefited from a Cyber Crime lecture which was conducted at the Zara Computer School, Suddie, Essequibo Coast.

The lecture was done by Nardeo Singh, a member of the Zara Company.

The lecture which aimed at assisting the police to provide a more efficient Cyber Crime service, covered the following topics: Educating the public on Cyber Crime, Ethics of Technology, Hacking and Electronic Protection, Protocol on Computer Network, Description of Cyber Crime, Coded Messages, Choosing a password, Importance of changing your password regularly, Software Piracy and Preventing Cybre crimes.

At the conclusion of the informative lecture, Mr Singh reminded the class that his presentation was another form of service that he had offered society.

The cybercrime legislation was crafted to make illegal, certain activities using a computer and over the internet, such as child pornography, cyber bullying, theft of data, and revenge porn, among others.

The law sets out that a person commits an offence if he/she intentionally, without authorization or in excess of authorization, or by infringing any security measure, accesses a computer system or any part of a computer system of another person.

Cybercrime also deals with child pornography and child luring. It says that a person who produces child pornography for the purpose of distribution through a computer system, or offers or makes available, distributes or transmits child pornography through a computer system, commits an offence.

The law was made effective on August 13, 2018, after President David Granger assented to the provisions outlined in the cybercrime bill.
