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:
Social engineering is the term used for a broad range of malicious activities accomplished through human interactions. It uses psychological manipulation to trick users into making security mistakes or giving away sensitive information.
Social engineering attacks happen in one or more steps. A perpetrator first investigates the intended victim to gather necessary background information, such as potential points of entry and weak security protocols, needed to proceed with the attack. Then, the attacker moves to gain the victim’s trust and provide stimuli for subsequent actions that break security practices, such as revealing sensitive information or granting access to critical resources.
For the month of May, 2022 CIET-NCERT has planned sessions on the theme “Social Engineering Attacks'' in collaboration with Information Security Education and Awareness (ISEA), CDAC, Hyderabad. A panel discussion will be conducted on the “Cyber Jaagrookta (Awareness) Diwas'' on 4 May, 2022 followed by 3 technical session on the given theme on the subsequent friday’s (i.e. 6/05/2022, 13/05/2022 & 20/05/2022). At the end of the session series, a comprehensive quiz will be launched based on all the sessions conducted in the month of May, 2022 on cyber safety and security.
