Union Home Minister Amit Shah has asked the G20 countries to go beyond traditional boundaries and address security challenges that have changed from “dynamite to metaverse” and “hawala to cryptocurrency”. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has stated that the G20 Summit, hosted by India, will give a chance to address the issue of debt relief and reform the global financial system. He expressed his worries about the overwhelming debt crisis worldwide. He said cybercrime is not just a problem on the internet, but now it threatens the safety of countries and the world. Speaking at a conference, Shah mentioned different cybercrimes like hacking, selling personal information, online harassment, and spreading fake news.
