The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Division of the government is setting up 'Cyber Security Help Desk' to provide technical and legal assistance for victims of hacked Facebook accounts.
State Minister for ICT Junaid Ahmed Palak came up with the information while speaking as the chief guest at a webinar titled 'Awareness of Girls in Digital Security' on Thursday.
Students of Singra Damdama Pilot School and College in Natore participated in the webinar.
Palak also urged the students to be very careful about giving passwords on the internet and sharing anything through social media platforms including Facebook.
Mentioning that about 70 percent of the victims of cybercrimes in the country are teenage girls, Palak said: “If you are a victim of cybercrime, you can call the National Emergency Service number 999 to get help from the police.”
He also urged the guardians to remain careful about the children’s activities in digital platforms.
