Webinar on Cyber Security
“The COVID-19 outbreak has introduced almost overnight changes to various landscapes across the globe as it swept through continents.”
Our school organized a webinar on much needed and vital topics nowadays-“The Pandemic-An opportunity to foster Digital Citizenship or trigger Cyber Threats?”. The guest for the day was Mr. Rakesh Kharwal, Managing Director in Cyberbit who with our young panelists discussed the state of cybersecurity in delicate times, the evolution of the threat landscape since the outbreak, and counter-responses to keep individuals and organizations safe. Our reliance on technology in our day-to-day life is exposing us to new kinds of risks.
Organizations are it educational or non-educational, are now facing new challenges in the business cybersecurity landscape.
Increasing the vulnerability to attacks by opportunistic cybercriminals. However, a few simple good practices by students learning from home with their devices can go a long way.
Students understood the motive behind the webinar and learned how to deal with such cases as online criminals have also begun to abuse the current situation using COVID-19 themed email attacks, phishing, and spam. These attacks feed on our current fear of the situation which leads to the tendency of not thinking twice before clicking email links or attachments. There were many takeaways for both, students and teachers.

We stayed home, maintained social distancing, and marked the day virtually wherein all the participants looked enthusiastic while participating in an array of learning activities like- Webinar, Essay Writing Competition, and Grow a sapling in their name.
