United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Aprobes National Campaign on Cybercrime Prevention "Do Not Trust Emojis"

San Salvador, September 27, 2016. United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) approved, together with the United Nations Fund for Children (Unicef), the National Cybercrime Prevention Campaign "Do not trust Emojis". The approval session took place with 10 middle school students of "Centro Escolar Católico Pablo VI School", who actively participated. The campaign will be launched on October 7.

The aim of the national public awareness campaign is to sensitize both children and adults of the possible risks and threats faced online.  The awareness campaign will include outdoor advertising such as billboards, marquees and advertising on the back of buses in the eight largest cities of the country. As part of the campaign an informative App will be launched, with the purpose to explain in a clear and entertaining manner about the dangers that are found on Internet, and what to do in case of being victimized by cybercrime.

The national public awareness campaign was developed thanks to the financial resources provided by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) of the Embassy of the United States in El Salvador under the project "Strengthening of the capacities of El Salvador National Police to effectively identify and investigate cybercrime cases", which is being implemented by UNODC, and is part of the Global Programme on Cybercrime -GLOX76
