Jamaicans are being urged to be mindful of how they use their computer and any other electronic device, as digital crimes are on the rise.
Head of the JCF’s Communication Forensic and Cyber Division at the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch, CTOC, DSP Warren Williams is reminding the public that the Internet is an unregulated space.
DSP Williams was speaking on Sunday during a virtual town hall meeting under the theme “Turning the Tide Against E-Crime”.
He highlights that cyber criminals can easily send a code to a user and just by clicking that code, they gain full access to the electronic device.
He notes that malicious communication is most prevalent this year.
