Digital Security and Online Safety Manual

Digital Security and the Safety of women online have become extremely important, now more than ever. With the rapid adoption of technology and digital platforms, the internet has become a vital resource for all groups of people regardless of age, sex, gender, race, or one’s identity.

Whereas the adoption of the use of the internet and digital technology has sky-rocketed, there has been an increase in threats and challenges related to using these digital platforms. These threats and challenges do not segregate on which group of people are a target. However, women appear to be more of a target when it comes to online threats and this is simply because they are women. According to WOUGNET’s recent study, women face more online threats compared to men while using these online platforms.

In this day and age, Online gender-based Violence (OGBV) has become a force to reckon with and needs to be taken seriously if women's safety online is to be guaranteed. This Digital Security manual is a step in the right direction in ensuring that women's safety online is something they can give priority to and put in place the necessary measures needed to ensure they achieve it. The manual aims at providing women with basic digital security knowledge and skills that they can implement to take ownership of their online safety and security.
