Cyber Jaagrookta Diwas

Organized by CIET-NCERT in collaboration with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham

Theme for December, 2022 : Cyber Threats

What is Cyber Jaagrookta Diwas? The Ministry of Home Affairs is implementing a scheme called the ”Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C)” to deal with cyber crimes in a coordinated and comprehensive manner. In order to create awareness amongst students of schools & colleges, teachers and parents it is proposed to observe “Cyber Jaagrookta (Awareness) Diwas'' on the first wednesday of every month in all Schools/Colleges/Universities/Panchayati Raj Institutions(PRI) and Municipalities by involving District Magistrates Police Authorities, Officers of Education Department etc.

About the Theme: For the month of December, 2022 CIET-NCERT in collaboration with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has planned sessions on the theme “Cyber Threats”. A cyber threat is an activity intended to compromise the security of an information system by altering the availability , integrity , or confidentiality of a system or the information it contains, or to disrupt digital life in general. It describes any potential malicious attack that aims to get data illegally, interfere with digital operations, or contaminate information. The rapid and ongoing evolution of security vulnerabilities is one of the most challenging aspects of cybersecurity. Hacking methods are being developed rapidly by cybercriminals. Since they strike rapidly, timely security is more important than ever. Consequently, understanding the threat is one of the first steps in establishing a successful cybersecurity approach.

Four live interaction sessions will be conducted on the given theme, that is on the first Wednesday i.e. 07/12/2022 & the subsequent Friday’s (i.e. 09/12/2022, 16/12/2022, & 23/12/2022). At the end of the session series, a comprehensive quiz will be launched based on all the sessions conducted in the month of December, 2022 on“Cyber Threats” as a part of Cyber Jaagrookta Diwas.


  • To increase an awareness of the various types of cyberthreats.
