Mumbai: Children nowadays are online constantly for education, research, social interaction, entertainment, and gaming. They are very vulnerable to cybercrime which is rampant nowadays. Keeping this in mind, the Mumbai Police Cyber Branch and IMC Ladies’ Wing under its initiative - Aamchi Mumbai, Safe Mumbai in association with Responsible Netism and supported by Kokuyo Camlin Ltd have initiated Project Cyber Safe Mumbai. The project aims to create awareness of Cyber Safety through a Poster Competition.
The poster competitions on the theme of online safety would be divided into a set of two groups - students of grades 5 to 7 and students of grades 8 to 10. It will be implemented within all schools across Mumbai by January, 2023 and will culminate with an exhibition to display the best posters created by children and displayed across platforms to create awareness about online safety with the objective to make Mumbai cyber safe.
Explaining the #cybersafemumbai project DCP Cyber Mumbai said that Awareness is the key to prevention of the cyber crime. If someone falls prey to cybercrime then Immediate reporting to 1930 and www.cybercrime.gov.in which will help to investigate well and recover the money.
Speaking about the project Mrs. Roma Singhania – President, IMC Ladies’ Wing stated," Every child is unique. They all want different things from their online experience, and they all deal with danger in different ways.
