We started by carrying out a field study on the use of the Internet in Cameroon,on the activities that attract the citizens in the net
We realized that because of poverty, most citizens especially the youths, use the internet for criminal purposes. Secondly we found out that the government is not equipped to face this problem (cyber criminality).
After the field study, we wrote to many companies, schools and youths, warning them on the negative impact such activities can have on our economy, and that there are many opportunities they can engage in to ensure their future without necessarily inducing harm to others. Most of the responses we had from the companies let us to the understanding that there is a high need for safety mechanisms to be put in place to protect data from cyber criminals, but the know how is not there due to economic reasons.
The youths are gaining conscience of their acts and are anxiously waiting for our crew to visit their schools.
i-Vission International decided to bring experts on the ICT together who finally accepted to do something, to eradicate this challenge.
Presently we have had some partners who are supporting us financially, but we need more support to reach our goals; especially computers, and experts.
