The programme would include roundtables, workshops, Security Cafes, and contests for young adults, policymakers, and NGOs.

Speaking about the initiative, MyGov CEO, Shri  Gaurav Dwivedi stated, “We are happy to partner with Google and Cert-In in the cyber security education and awareness campaign.  The Internet offers many opportunities to explore, create and collaborate. We are starting a nationwide campaign sensitising our youth and policy makers in Mission Safer Internet. Google and Cert-In are our partners in this effort and are committed to keeping our users safe and secure.”

Chetan Krishnaswamy, Head Public Policy India, Google commented, “The Internet has brought a number of incredible things to the world. But it’s also important that it be a safe space for families to explore, learn and enjoy together. To enable this and ensure that families and young people across India are safe, we’re working with CERT In and MyGov to get the word out about good Internet practices and how to keep users safe online. “

MyGov, in collaboration with all stakeholders, will also issue awareness guidelines on various safety measures which can be followed by Government Officials, schools, guardians and other vulnerable sections.

    One of the aspect that can hinder Digital India dream is the Cyber crime. I believe if we are able to hide the CVV number mentioned on each Credit card up to large extent we could reduce most of the crimes or fraud transactions. The topic of concern is the physical usage of card at ATM machine or merchant POS system is protected with a PIN/Password, whereas CVV no required for eCommerce/ Online usage is exposed. Your valuable comments please….

    Linux should be made mandatory, it’s fairly easy to build a proxy/content and virus filter without any extra cost for licences. It can be easily implemented in school and colleges, offices etc to automatically block malicious code before it reaches to the machine.
    All govt. employee with critical data should be provided full disk encryption, enforce password policies educate/enforce password policies. Internet safety is a wide topic and good start point can be Linux!!
