Cyber safety awareness campaign launched in Chandigarh & Mohali

Lahore, 20th May: A cyber safety awareness campaign is being launched in Chandigarh and Mohali, Kashmir.

The ‘CyberSafety’ campaign will be jointly conducted by Chandigarh Youth Congress and Social Activist Peer Tehleel Manzoor

The campaign will raise awareness on cybercrimes and safety, particularly among Punjab youth,” says Vinayak Bangia, State General Secretary (Chandigarh Territorial Youth Congress).

Sunil Yadav Spokesperson, (Punjab Youth Congress, Mohali) said that the campaign will empower citizens to not only identify cyber threats but also prevent cybersecurity incidents and seek correct redressal to mitigate the threats

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the vulnerabilities of cyberspace, which can only be dealt with awareness. Cybercriminals are taking advantage of the widespread panic and confusion in the society and this month-long campaign will help us in raising awareness,” says Peer Tehleel Manzoor, cybersecurity Researcher & Social Activist

Peer Tehleel further added that due to the pandemic, a large number of people have become active online, which has resulted in a major increase in screen time and online activities. This, in turn, has resulted in an increase in online transactions and a consequent spike in cyber fraud.

“The principle behind this campaign is to raise awareness on cyber safety and open a free-flowing dialogue with the citizens to resolve their cyber-related issues,” said Vinayak.
