CBSE Takes Initiative to Prevent Cybercrime by Forming Cyber Clubs in Schools
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a circular calling for the formation of Cyber Clubs in schools across India. The move is aimed at raising awareness about cybercrime and empowering students to stay safe online.
The circular states that one teacher, preferably with a background in cyber security, should be designated as the Cyber Nodal Officer for each school. This officer will be responsible for coordinating the activities of the Cyber Club and providing regular cyber safety tips to students.
The Cyber Clubs will be responsible for a variety of activities, including:
- Educating students about cybercrime and the importance of cyber hygiene
- Providing hands-on training on cyber security
- Organizing events and competitions to raise awareness about cybercrime
- Developing and disseminating cyber safety materials
The circular also states that the Cyber Clubs will be supported by the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C), which is a government agency that is responsible for combating cybercrime in India.
The formation of Cyber Clubs in schools is a welcome initiative that is likely to have a positive impact on the fight against cybercrime. By providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to stay safe online, these clubs can help to create a safer digital environment for everyone.
Here are some additional details
- The Cyber Clubs will be open to all students, regardless of their academic background or interests.
- The clubs will be run by the students themselves, with the guidance of the Cyber Nodal Officer.
- The clubs will meet regularly to discuss cyber security issues and plan activities.
- The clubs will also be involved in outreach activities, such as organizing cyber safety workshops for parents and teachers.
