Empowering Parents To Help Young Adults Stay Safe In The Online World

NDTV and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham's campaign, Safe in Cyberia talks about how our young adults can stay safe in an increasingly online world. There is an entire ecosystem that needs to come together to ensure a high degree of digital safety. From parents, teachers and educational institutions to law and order, policy, the people who make the products and the government. With everyone spending more and more time online whether it is for work, studies, retail or pleasure, what are the ways to navigate the online world safely, tools, processes and good values that can keep us protected?

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

Digital environment that the pandemic created has further taken over practically every aspect of our lives. All our needs are being met online. Young adults, especially those in schools, are consuming and interacting with data like never before. But we are not just getting from the online world, we are also giving out something vital - information. About us. Without even knowing it.

Cybercrime, which includes everything from theft and embezzlement to data hacking and identity theft, was up 600% as a result of the pandemic. But the vast majority of the teens and young adults are not aware of the perils of the online world.

Issues of data security and privacy are not widely known. The frequent use of digital tools to lure young people into dangerous and compromising situations is not known. The infinite possibilities and types of cybercrime are not known.
