The legal advisor of the Island Service for the Prevention and Attention to Gender-based Cyber-violence (SIPACM), Verónica Rodríguez González, intervened in the IV Course of Specialised Training in Legal Assistance in the Field of Gender-based and Sexual Violence, held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The intervention of the SIPACM specialist took place on 1 December and referred to the current situation regarding gender-based cyber-violence, with updated figures that reflect the increase in cases, the current legislation and challenges and the work being carried out by the Service to prevent it and to assist the women, adolescents and girls affected, as well as their families.

The course was organised by The School of Legal Practice of Las Palmas, The Training Room of Las Palmas Law Society, by the Commission for Equality and Gender Violence, and the Ministry of Public Administration, Justice and Security of the Canary Islands Government. It was funded by the Ministry of Equality and the Canary Islands Institute for Equality.

The course is part of the actions and preventive measures that, in terms of gender violence, must be developed under the auspices of the State Pact against Gender Violence of 2017, and through which it is intended to influence in the areas of awareness and prevention; improvement of the institutional response; improvement of assistance, aid and protection to victims; assistance and protection of minors; and promotion of the training of the different agents, among other objectives.

The course, which lasted nine hours over two days and was attended by a large group of experts, enabled access to the specialised Public Defence Service for Gender Violence to practice in the territorial judicial districts attached to the Bar Association of Las Palmas.

The Island Service for the Prevention and Attention to Gender-based Cyber-violence (SIPACM), coordinated by Opciónate, has been set up with funding from the Department of Social Policy, Accessibility, Equality and Diversity and is part of the Network of Services for the Prevention, Attention and Shelter of Women and Minors Victims of Gender Violence in Gran Canaria.
