In his remarks, Dr Albert Antwi-Boasiako, who is also the Chairperson of the JCC, emphasised the need to institutionalise cybercrime and cybersecurity knowledge of the curriculum for the training of the Judiciary at the Judicial Training Institute, in particular, and legal education in Ghana, in general.
In this regard, Dr Antwi-Boasiako indicated the resolve of the JCC to support the Chief Justice to integrate cybercrime and digital evidence training into the curriculum of legal professionals in the country as a whole, noting that such an intervention would help improve the knowledge base of legal professions in cyber security as a new branch of emerging law in the country.
The Director-General of the CSA also raised concerns about the state of cybersecurity of the Judicial Service and the cyber threats targeting critical information infrastructures of the country and appealed to the Chief Justice to consider improving the cybersecurity posture of the Judicial Service as a key priority, in view of the Chief Justice’s vision to adopt IT systems to improve the administration of justice in the country.
The judiciary’s representative on the JCC, Justice Afia Serwaa Asare Botwe lauded the Chief Justice for her leadership and vision to expand cybercrime and digital evidence training for the judiciary.
