A recent report launched by the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) last month, ranked Ghana as the most affected country after Nigeria to have suffered from digital security attacks in the last 12 months.
According to the report titled, “Landscape Mapping of Civil Society Digital Security in West Africa,” Ghana scored 5.06% out of 31 of civil society organisations (CSOs) in the region that suffered cyber-attacks over the past 12 months.
In response to this worrying situation among other technological challenges facing CSOs in the country, the Civic Space Resource Hub for West Africa (CSR-Hub) has organised a three-day rigorous training on digital security and protection for 20 Ghanaian civic actors. Co-managed by WACSI and Spaces for Change, Nigeria (S4C), CSR-Hub is a capacity building platform for CSOs pushing back restrictions to open civic space, enabling environment, civil liberties, and open society in West Africa. One of the priority areas of the Hub is to reinforce the digital resilience of civil society in the region.
