In this age of advanced technology supported by powerful infrastructure and affordable internet, its use has become a necessity in the day to day activities.
This however comes with pros and cons, justifying the establishment of different laws to govern its use.
As such, women have been encouraged to exercise utmost caution when it comes to sharing private information particularly in this era of improved technology supported by affordable internet.
Stella Alibateese, the director Regulations and Legal Services at the National Information Technology Authority (NITA) said thorough evaluation of the impact of such information should be undertaken incase it finds its way into public domain.
Unfortunately, women are some of the most affected victims of cyber bullying and harassment.
The National Information Technology Authority acknowledges this and has established legal measures to that effect.
But even with the existence of such legal measures to protect especially the women from internet related crimes, it does not take away personal responsibility.
Nonetheless, the existence of especially the Electronic Transactions Act which provides for online transactions should enable women to carry out online business with less hustle.
Young girls have equally been encouraged to take up several opportunities in the ICT world with not only to seeking employment but also using it as a platform for innovation.
