From Web to Webbed - Cyber Crime Awareness by Secondary Section at WIS, Pawan Baug (2020-21)

Technology is everywhere and has converted the world into a global village. It has revolutionized the way we communicate in our personal and professional lives. Teenagers stare down at their iPhones, or keep their eyes glued to a tablet or laptop, instead of observing the world around them. It's not unusual to see two adolescents travelling together, yet texting furiously on their mobiles rather than talking to each other.

 Today, everyone’s exposure to the internet has increased manifold which makes them highly vulnerable to cybercrimes. It is evident that if children are not made aware of methods which cybercriminals use for cybercrime, children will fall a prey. 

To educate and enlighten the students, Witty International School had organized a seminar on Cyber Crime Awareness on the 27th of June for the students from Grade VII- A level.

The guest, Commander Kaushal. K. Chaudhary, Retired Indian Naval Officer, from ‘WeSeSo’ [We Secure Society] organization enlightened students of the illegal activities that take place online, including fraud, spam, identity theft, phishing, computer viruses and worms, cyber stalking, drug trafficking, spoofing and much more. He shared anecdotes and bitter experiences of people who became victims to such crimes. Furthermore, Mr. Chaudhary gave a detailed explanation on how one can take precautionary measures to stay safe.

Children are tech savvy, but it exposes them to a number of risks. It’s the duty of the parents to help keep their children safe by monitoring their online activities and minimizing the use of social media.

It was an extremely informative and effective session which kids thoroughly enjoyed and gained knowledge beyond expectations. The webinar ended with an extremely interactive question and answer session.
