Cyber Crimes against Women and Children
Present Cyber Crime Landscape

Cyber Crimes against Women and Children are on the Rise

The number of Internet users in India is nearing 500 million. Though women constitute only 30% of the Internet users in India, patriarchy continues to show its ugly fangs even in the virtual world where women are frequently targeted and defamed. A survey shows that 76% of women below the age of 30 have faced online harassment, and 1 in 10 women under 30 has been the target of revenge porn and/or sextortion.

Children are also an easy prey for cyber crimes as they are quite naïve to the sinister cyber world. Blue Whale, a notorious and deadly suicide game that was circulated online, led many innocent children to an unfortunate end to their lives.
