A programme on Cyber Safety and Consumer Awareness was conducted at Little Rock Indian School, Brahmavar by Mr. I L Narasimha Rao and Ms. Janice Verghese of Cyber Peace Foundation, Ranchi for the students and teachers on 28th August 2019.
Internet, the most interactive technological platform of this century has become an integral part of our daily lives. Awareness about the safe and responsible use of it is everybody’s duty.
As many as 1292 students participated in the programme which was conducted in two sessions. Students were told about ‘malware’, dangerous sites, and potential dangers in befriending unknown people.
Cyber safety is the safe and responsible use of information and communication technology. It is not only about keeping our data safe and secure, but also about being responsible with that information, being respectful to other people online, and practising good 'netiquette' (internet etiquette), the team emphasized.
The IT Act was also highlighted. There are provisions to complain to the Cyber Cell of the Police Dept for legal measures against predators who harass others. The punishments for online mischief are very severe.
