Creating Awareness About Cyber Security
“The campaign theme for this year, "See Yourself in Cyber," demonstrates that although cybersecurity may seem like a complex subject, it's all about individuals. This October will concentrate on the "people" aspect of cybersecurity, delivering information and resources to help educate our business partners and the public. It would ensure all individuals and organizations make intelligent decisions, whether on the job or at home – now and in the future,” commented by Dipesh Kaura, GM, South Asia Kaspersky.
He added, “We motivate everyone to engage in this year's endeavours by supporting cyber awareness campaigns and conveying this message to their peers. When we speak See Yourself in Cyber, we indicate to witness yourself in cyber no matter your role. As an individual or consumer, take basic measures to protect your online data and privacy. Businesses can take ownership of their data security while safeguarding their brand and reputation through strong cybersecurity in place at work to help thwart an incident. It would raise awareness that critical infrastructure owners are part of a more extensive network of systems that requires tech drive cyber security tools. Finally, there is an immediate global requirement for skilled, diverse cyber workers with advanced technical skills to encounter the cyber challenges of today and tomorrow.”
