Cyber Crime awareness programme at GDC Gambhiraopet | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

RAJANNA-SIRCILLA, AUGUST 2, 2023: In an effort to contain the growing number of cybercrimes, the Cybercrime police station officials held an awareness programme on cyber security for the benefit of students of Government Degree College, Gambhiraopet, Rajanna-Sircilla district, on Wednesday.

The police launched an awareness campaign to inform the students about the dos and don’ts if they fall victim to online frauds. The victims can call the helpline number 112 or 1930 without delay to help the police to act. The sooner you report, the higher the chances of getting the money back, the police informed.

ASI M Prabhakar Reddy, Head constable M Narayana and constable P Srinivas told the students were also apprised of safe usage of debit and credit cards. They were also empowered that they should not fall prey to fraudulent callers who offer better interest rates against cash deposit or loans at low interest rates. Fraud lottery schemes were also discussed.

“A computer can be used as a tool for committing a crime in the cyber space. Hacking, data theft, identity theft, card frauds, cyber laundering are some of the common cyber crimes,” Dr V Vijaya Lakshmi, principal of the college said. She informed the students about the unique features of cyber crime and said prevention through awareness was the best cure.

“People are now active in online shopping and bill payment, so the chances password theft have become a common problem. We should be vigilant about our children using the internet. We should keep changing passwords frequently,” she educated.
