About this event

High school students are becoming increasingly vulnerable to cybercrime, and this vulnerability is made worse by a lack of knowledge and tools to protect them from online threats. This problem goes beyond financial losses; it causes students' anxiety and mental pain as well. The lack of comprehensive education and guidance in both the family and educational domains causes vulnerability, making it necessary for pupils to have real-world skills and knowledge in order to be protected in the digital age.

This project proposes a multifaceted solution that includes online workshops, guest speakers, interactive cyber-gaming playgrounds, and an outreach strategy through an Instagram account. This solution aims to increase students' awareness of cyber threats, promote digital literacy, offer useful knowledge about mobile device security, and equip them to spot and stop phishing scams. This solution adds value by giving students the knowledge and skills they need to navigate the digital age properly and help create a more ethical and secure digital society.
