Kochi, Jul 28 (PTI) In a bid to tackle the

increasing incidents of cyber related crimes in Kerala,

the police department has decided to launch cybersafety

awareness campaigns in the state.

As part of it, the Kerala PoliceCyberdome is

partnering with CyberPeace Foundation (CPF), a leading civil

society organization and thinktank of cybersecurity and policy

experts to encourage cyber wellness and cybercrime awareness

events and workshops among the public in the state.

Senior IPS officer Manoj Abraham on Tuesday

said Kerala PoliceCyberdome is partnering with CyberPeace

Foundation in the fight against cybercrime and in creating a

secure cyberspace.

According to CPF, owing to COVID-19 and perennial

threats emanating from the domain of cyberspace, India

currently trails behind its global counterparts in terms of

capacity to address the growing volume of threats.

Phishing, scamming, malicious domains,

stalkerware, ransomware, etc have witnessed a manifold

increase in the last few months especially as internet usage

surges owing to the restrictions around COVID-19 designed to

contain the spread of the virus.

"We will be collaborating, cooperating and

coordinating to identify cyber threats, focusing on prevention

of cyber security incidents and to develop strong, efficient

mitigation mechanisms to fight cyber-crimes.

I hope our close co-operation will address emerging

threats, provide guidance to the public on risk management;

thus creating a resilient cyber space," said Abraham, ADGP

(HQ) & Nodal Officer, Kerala PoliceCyberdome.

Under the partnership, CPF will work closely with

police to co-create cybersafety awareness campaigns, train law

enforcement officers on the nuances of investigation into

cybercrimes and also enhance their knowledge building capacity

in order to stay updated with the latest developments in the

domain of cybercrimes, a CPF statement said here.

CPF said it will also co-promote various

cybersafety educational campaigns and materials across social

media and offline via handbooks, virtual training camps and

more.

"Will constitute a CyberSecurity think tank and

function through various expert committees to learn,

understand, analyze, resolve, and manage multiple cybercrime

issues.

Collaboration and extension with other institutions

and ensuring public and private partnerships," it said.

Creation of knowledge and expertise to face new

and emerging cybercrime challenges to suggest possible

solutions and advocacy, CPF said.

The initiative will further strengthen the

efforts between law enforcement authorities and CPF to jointly

combat the menace of cybercrimes, it added.PTI TGB BN
