BYITC will select 100 schools and our cyber experts will provide a 40 to 60 mins live/recorded masterclass to the students. It will be followed by a half an hour assessment to be conducted within 48 hours of the master class. All participants will be provided with a Masterclass participation certificate and the top 3 winners of the test will be awarded a “Cyber Champ Student” certificate.
Based on the Cyber Awareness test performance of the students from all 100 schools, the top 10 schools will be selected and awarded as “Cyber Champ Schools” for promoting and encouraging cyber awareness among their students.
A recognition certificate will be issued to the Cyber Champ schools along with trophies.
The children will be expected to participate in an online Cyber Awareness Assessment from school computer lab or from their home. The assessment can be taken through Desktop/ laptop/ Tablet or smart phone.
The assessment will have 30 questions and 30 mins time will be provided to submit it.
This Competition & Survey will help us understand Cyber Security awareness level among school students and in turn will promote cyber awareness and its importance among students, parents and schools.
Our children deserve to be informed about increasing cyber threats and the safety measures. Today, in this digital world, children are very vulnerable on the internet.
The unprecedented times of COVID-19 have forced everyone including the children to use more and more digital platforms. Transition to online education has furthermore exposed children to the perils of cyberthreats. The situation is expected to get murkier as technology is something which is here to stay and we would need to partner with that to be able to cope up with this tremendously increasing digitalized world.
It is our prerogative as a parent, teacher and as an educator to protect our children and youth as they are most vulnerable and can easily fall into a trap. It is important to teach them about simple online scams, like phishing, ransomware and other malware, which are designed for stealing personal data or intellectual property.
