Cyber Security Training is the way forward.

The Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation has partnered with Huawei Ghana to organise Cybersecurity training for 20,000 Senior High School (SHS) Girls in the Ashanti Region.

The partnership is under the first phase of its Seeds for the Future- Women in Tech programme aimed at empowering more women and girls in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

A joint statement issued by the two institutions said the training which was under the Ministry’s National Girls-In-ICT programme would engage 11 schools at the Senior High level.

It said it was to equip them with the fundamentals of cybersecurity and enable them to stay safe in the cyberspace

Beneficiary schools for the first phase include Kumasi Wesley Girls SHS, Yaa Asantewaa SHS, St Louis SHS, Serwaa Nyarko Girls, Kumasi Girls, Adventist Girls SHS, St Mary’s Girls, Afua Kobi Ampem Girls, St Monica’s, TI Ahmadiyya and Prince of Peace Girls.

The statement said the second and third phases of the training would take place at the Central and Eastern Regions and it was expected to double the number of beneficiaries.

Mrs Ama Pomaa Boateng, the Deputy Minister for Communications and Digitalisation, said the initiative was part of efforts to continue empowering the youth with the technological skills urgently needed to thrive in the digital era.

She expressed the hope that much enthusiasm would be generated among the girls to enhance ICT education in Ghana.

Mrs. Jenny Zhou, the Director of Public Relations for Huawei Ghana, said Huawei would continue to provide support for initiatives targeted at empowering more females to take up roles in the tech space.

“In the digital era, the most important measure to bridge the digital gender gap is through education. Whether it’s college education or social training, we need to give women more opportunities to participate in the digital profession,” she said.

The Cyber Security Training, which began October 16, 2021, focused on Information Security, Cyber Bullying and Attacks, Child Online Protection Provisions in the New Cyber Security Act 2020, and tips on how to stay safe online.

The girls were also sensitized on the need to report all cyber-related issues to the National Cyber Security Authority by sending SMS the shortcode 292 for prompt response and assistance.

According to the minister, the extension had become necessary due to the various challenges registrants are facing to complete the exercise. One major factor can be attributable the issue or acquisition of their national identification cards.

This has led to several calls on the government and the ministry to extend the exercise to September 30.


“Upon consultation, Government has decided to grant a final conditional extension. The programme will be extended to September 30 to end on the anniversary of its commencement, that will give us one full year of SIM re-registration,” the minister stated.

“It will be reviewed at the end of this month [July] and any SIM that has not been fully registered by the end of August will be barred from certain services including voice and data. It will also be more expensive to use unregistered SIMs,” she added.
