SafeHouse Technologies, an Indo-Israeli cyber security firm, teamed with Haryana Police for their initiative Gurugram Police Cyber Security Summer Internship 2021 (GPCSSI 2021).
Haryana Police, Rakshit Tandon, a cybersecurity specialist, and the Society for Safe Gurgaon (SSG) collaborated to promote awareness about cyber security. In a month-long online event with Haryana Police, over 5800 students were trained.
The association’s goal was to combat rising cybercrime and provide guidance to young Indian minds with a constructive attitude toward the cyber world.
Commenting on the development, Aditya Narang, Co-founder and MD-India, SafeHouse Technologies, said “We were honoured to have led this initiative, GPCSSI 2021. SafeHouse started with a mission of #SecuringIndia, by providing digital security to everyone online. Thanks to initiatives like GPCSSI the awareness around cyber security in India is increasing rapidly and enabling our citizens to be skilled in this domain.”
Aditya Narang added, “The increasing cyber-attacks due the pandemic have posed a significantly elevated threat level for mobile users. There are several malicious apps that steal data, behavioral patterns, pictures, and banking information of the users. There is a need to sensitise internet users about these risks so that they understand the importance of securing their mobile phones and other devices.”
