Over the years, there has been a sharp increase in the numbers of cybercrime being committed in India. Unfortunately, a large chunk of these crimes are committed against women. Some of the key reasons contributing to this are the huge gender inequality prevalent in India, and also the lack of digital literacy. Over the last three years, through the two phases of the We Think Digital (formerly Digital Shakti) initiative, we sensitised over 1,67,000 girls and women across the country with the aim to build resilience in online spaces. However, there is still a large percentage of the female population that needs to be sensitised, to ensure women are safe when navigating cyberspace, and are equipped with the skills to make the most of what technology and the internet have to offer.
We are conducting sessions on online safety and digital absolutely free of cost, with special focus on empowering women through skill development.
The sessions are as follows:
1. Data Privacy and Social Media Safety
2. Cyber Ethics and Digital Wellbeing
3. Cyberlaw, Cybercrime and Redressal
Each session will be an hour long, i.e., 45 minutes long training session, followed by a 15 minute Q&A session. The session is open for all internet users above the age of 13. For conducting such sessions, send us an email at [email protected]
