Gavin Dennis helps Jamaicans to understand the country’s cybercrimes law

On February 10, 2018, Gavin Dennis published a web guide which helps Jamaicans the local law governing Cybercrimes.

He rephrased the fancy legal content of Jamaica’s Official Cybercrimes Act into simple English terms so citizens could more easily understand the legal implications of committing cybercrimes.

Along with the website, Gavin created a series of short image-based extracts of each section of the law and posted them as an educational campaign on Social Media. These extracts can be found on his social media pages on Twitter (@hackinggavin), Instagram (@hackinggavin), and LinkedIn (Gavin Dennis).

Below is the link to the web guide:
