Saltillo, Coahuila.- So far in 2021 alone, the Ministry of Public Security in Coahuila received 16 complaints of attacks or bad practices on the internet against children and adolescents, a figure eight times higher than those received in 2020, with only 2 reports.
Of these reports classified as “cyber-incident notification”, one from the North Region, another from the Laguna Region and the remaining 14 from the Southeast Region were received, while in 2019 only 5 reports were received from the Central Region of the entity. .
According to a request for information, it was in 2019 and 2020 in the years that these complaints turned out to be threats or extortion, however, in this 2021 the reports are demarcated from anonymous complaints from netizens who pointed to publications or Internet pages that could incur in any crime.
“The reports came as an anonymous complaint, but it does not mean that they are the cyber incidents that have been committed, that is a black figure, in many cases they are reports in which Internet users alert the authorities to review the content of a page or who administers it ”, explained Víctor Emmanuel Ortiz Lucio, General Coordinator of Information Analysis and Patrimonial Intelligence of the State Prosecutor’s Office.
