Infosec Awareness

Infosec Awareness is a formal process for educating pupils about computer security.

Internet safety is every ones responsibility. It’s all about being able to have fun online – to be able to chat with your friends, to post a video that you’ve made or a song that you’ve written, to be free to find out more about information you’re interested in and check out the latest trends – without being bullied, annoyed or scammed, or having your ideas stolen including identity theft.

Internet safety is a lot more than just about ensuring that your computer has the latest anti-virus and firewall software installed. It’s about being smart about how you handle yourself online and savvy about how you deal with other people (especially strangers who you meet online), and not falling prey to an online scam artist who takes advantage of your ignorance

Lack of awareness about the attack vectors that a malicious attacker uses makes it fairly easy for any user to fall victim to such attacks.Taking these as Initiative Indian Cyber Army came up with Information Security Awareness & Education. It aims to train participants and produce skilled ethical hacker and equips them with all the tools, techniques and methods needed to fight cyber crimes on the Internet and intended to produce cyber army for the next generation.
