Why Cyber Safety?

Every second, approximately 8 individual start using internet. Are you aware that there are more than 460 million internet users in India, and this is expected to grow to around 635.8 million by 2021? Or, that nearly 81% of kids between the ages of 8-16 are active on social media? Or, that of the children who are active on social media, 69% have published photos, 58% have posted their email address and 44% would meet or have met someone in person that they first met online?

Just goes to show, that our kids are tech-smart but not very cybersafety conscious. To make the Digital India dream come true and benefit the nation, internet users must be well-versed in cybersecurity and cyber etiquette. As our kids will be tomorrow's India, bringing them up to be model digital citizens should be a top priority. Where can they get this knowledge? Schools, without a doubt.
Let's think about why it is important to teach cybersafety in schools: • Children accept teachers as information providers and give credence to their words • Cybersafety training can be tailored according to age and grade • Group learning helps in building virtual social bonds, and confidence • Campaigns, contests and bulletin boards can be used to promote better virtual behaviour • New lectures similar to value education can be taken up to teach online etiquette.

With the ever-growing number of internet users and increasing cyber theft cases we realize the importance of cyber security among the youth and hence we choose to spread awareness about it this year.
