Bhubaneswar:6/9/17; When the Internet-based deadly games are threatening the entire world and Odisha has reportedly encountered some incidents, recently, arising out of such a dangerous game, largely confined to Smart phone using young students, experts invited by the Socially Smart Project, while speaking to young students of Biju Patnaik Institute of IT and Management (BIITM) today had an informative session to make them aware and also not to panic by any false claims by any hacker groups.
Students of BIITM during the afternoon today got an inspiring session to hear about cyber crime and also smart advice as what they should do and remember when they are using Internet.
Retired Vigilance SP Suryamani Tripathy while speaking on the occasion said “the youth today needs to be shown the right path, streamline their latent energy as they are losing track of their vision in the name of thrill and challenge. They are getting into unnecessary problems as many are admitting that they are playing such games as they are depressed.’’
The retired cop spoke about various categories of cyber crimes in India as it is the 5th nation in terms of cyber crime in the world with 13 lakh cases registered in the country. Currently Maharashtra is registering the highest number of cyber crime cases in India. While the cases include hacking, data theft and spreading of viruses, we often come across e-mail spoofing and creation of fake profiles to fool other Internet users. The Odisha Government is planning to open three cyber crime police stations across the state and it shows how the crime is increasingly multiplying in this region.
