Cyber Safety Week, Mumbai

Mumbai Police and NASSCOM are jointly organizing the Cyber Safety Week 2005 from the 21st to the 26th of November 2005. Cyber Safety Week is a mass awareness campaign to promote safe computing practices, with customized programmes for different groups of computer users.

Since the last Cyber Safety Week (held from the 23rd to 28th of August 2004), the Mumbai Police and NASSCOM have been vindicated for the emphasis placed on Cyber Security.

This approach of Public Private Participation, adopted by Mumbai Police and NASSCOM since 2003, has produced some spectacular gains in Mumbai, in creating a self-sustaining movement of public-private co-operation.

The past year has seen a lot of concerns being raised about the sanctity and security of information in India. Cases of financial fraud in the BPO Industry and incidents impacting Data Security and Privacy had made some people voice doubts about the pre-eminence of India as the outsourcing capital of the world. However, thanks to the quick action taken in response by the Police, Government and Industry bodies, our reputation has remained unsullied.

Cyber Crime has evolved quite considerably from web page hacking and spoofing email accounts to be a serious criminal business today. Today, worldwide the key concerns are Identity Theft and National Security Implications. The evolution of the cyber offenders are also worrisome. Earlier, the average offender would be a technology geek who intruded into systems to prove his prowess. Financial gain was not too important. However, with the large amounts of money being transacted online and with banks, brokerages and markets digitizing their operations, this has changed. Even organized crime has entered Cyber Space in a huge way.

Increasing complexity and rapid evolution of computing technologies will introuduce greater threats to cyber safety. Even people who are not using computers would be put to risk. Banks and Financial Institutions are one of the earliest and largest adopters of IT. Governments are also realizing the benefits of IT and are making up for lost time in digitizing records.

This edition of the Cyber Safety Week aims to educate computer users in a more practical and hands-on way. The Week seeks to make the users alert as to the ways how systems can be compromised and show that complacency in IT security can be devastating.

As compared to the earlier editions, the Week’ 05 is a more intense and focused approach targeting specific target groups.

The Week will be inaugurated on 21 November by Dr Kumar Mangalam Birla, Chairman, Aditya Birla Group, during a function presided over by Mr K V Kamath, MD & CEO, ICICI Bank. Mr. A.N.Roy, Commissioner of Police, Mumbai and Mr. Kiran Karnik, President, NASSCOM will address the audience as well.
