Dr C B Sharma, was welcomed by , Dean Academics & Admin, RIET, Prof. Kapil Dev Sharma and Prof Sachin Sharma, Vice Principal, RIET. The session was attended by all HODs, students and faculty members of RIET. Dr Sharma in his workshop explained that it is not unusual for teenagers and young people to get involved in cybercriminal activities at an early age. Some do it for fun without realizing the consequences of their actions – but the penalties can be severe. Cybercrime isn’t a victimless crime and it is taken extremely seriously by law enforcement. The minors that become involved in cybercrime often have a skill set that could be put to a positive use. Skills in coding, gaming, computer programming, cyber security or anything IT-related are in high demand and there are many professional careers and opportunities available to anyone with IT talent and an interest in these areas.

Cyber-crime and privacy breach in India has been growing exponentially every few months. In this scenario, it is important for every user to understand the risks associated with transactions in cyber space; implications of data leaks and privacy breaches through social media or email transactions and your remedies, said Dr Sharma, is very important and should be taken care of with utmost priority. He enlightened the students on the topic with many examples and told about cyber crime consequences. He also added that lack of user awareness about Internet, cyber laws and risks pose a big challenge in India. When we consider the wide strata of users, from tech-savvy to new users, as well as different socio-economic conditions, demographics, culture and age, making users aware about the risk and saving them from cyber frauds is a challenge before law enforcement agencies as well as the government. All those who use the internet through cell-phones or PCs should be aware of the same.

Speaking on the occasion Dean Academics & Admin, RIET, Prof. Kapil Dev Sharma said about cyber crime that what started with attacks on unsuspecting victims has now become a well-organized industry; therefore it is essential for all internet users to have full knowledge of cyber crime and its prevention.

The vote of thanks was extended by Prof Sachin Sharma, Vice Principal, RIET, who expressed his gratitude to Dr Sharma for giving his valuable time and imparting this knowledge.
