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 January, 2023 CIET-NCERT in collaboration with Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA) has planned sessions on the theme “New Emerging Technologies: Threats and Opportunities”. Cyberspace is a broad and immeasurable mass of space where you can literally avail innumerable services for messaging, storage devices, and online gaming programs. With time, the number of users using the internet and availing services in cyberspace has also increased tenfold. With an increase in the number of users, the number of cases of misappropriation, fraud, privacy violations, etc. have also gone up, causing an unsettling feeling of unease among those who are somehow connected using this vast network of computers. So it is a given that the need to improve cybersecurity measures has also become a pressing job.

Four live interaction sessions will be conducted on the given theme, that is on the first Wednesday i.e. 04/01/2023 & the subsequent Friday’s (i.e. 06/01/2023, 13/01/2023, & 20/01/2023). At the end of the session series, a comprehensive quiz will be launched based on all the sessions conducted in the month of January, 2023 on “New Emerging Technologies: Threats and Opportunities” as a part of Cyber Jaagrookta Diwas.
