Measures to combat cybercrime during the Covid-19 crisis

Panama, April 10, 2020. The Global Cybercrime Programme of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN) delivered an online course on measures to combat online sexual exploitation during the Covid-19 crisis, in collaboration with the Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC).

Nearly 400 people attended this training, which was open to the public.

Among the topics discussed at the workshop were the risks, challenges, detection and reporting of online sexual exploitation, especially when it affects the thousands of children who study at home.

In addition, this same global program organized the webinar "Where to report suspected child sexual exploitation during COVID 19", which focused on hotlines and assistance in reporting the crime and helping victims of child sexual exploitation.

"Cybercrime during COVID-19" was the topic presented by the ROPAN expert during the "First International Virtual Legal Congress: Transnational Organized Crime", held by a Guatemalan university. This online event was attended by 380 prosecutors, lawyers and students.
