ZI­RAKPUR: Dik­shant In­ter­na­tional School or­gan­ised a work­shop on ‘dig­i­tal threats and se­cu­ri­ties among chil­dren’ for students, teach­ers and par­ents on Satur­day.

Ti­tled ‘safe surf­ing’, the work­shop was con­ducted by Rakshit Tan­don, an ad­vi­sor and in­ves­ti­ga­tion ex­pert to the cy­ber crime unit of Ut­tar Pradesh Po­lice at Agra. He is also a vis­it­ing fac­ulty lec­turer at Dr BR Ambed­kar Po­lice Academy, Mo­rad­abad (UP) and Haryana Po­lice Academy, Mad­huban, Kar­nal.

Rakshit shared with school students of Class III and above cy­ber crime is­sues. The idea was to sensitise students on the types of cy­ber crimes and pre­ven­tive mea­sures to be taken while surf­ing the In­ter­net.

He also spoke on the In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy Act and the re­me­dial mea­sures that should be taken if one were vic­timised by cy­ber crim­i­nals. Tan­don gave pre­sen­ta­tions to teach­ers and par­ents on cy­ber is­sues. Mi­tul Dik­shit, di­rec­tor, Dik­shant In­ter­na­tional School, said, “Tech­nol­ogy has be­come an im­por­tant part of our ev­ery­day lives. It is, there­fore, im­por­tant for us to ed­u­cate our chil­dren about the safe use of tech­nol­ogy. As par­ents, each of us needs to play a vi­tal role in help­ing pro­tect our chil­dren from var­i­ous threats of tech­nol­ogy.”
