Truecaller and CyberPeace launches TrueCyberSafe campaign

When you heard about the ransomeware (using unethical means) then the hacker ran some where from the Government.

Truecaller, the world’s leading global communications platform, in collaboration with CyberPeace Foundation, a non-partisan civil society organization, conducted their first training in Karnataka as part of the ongoing national #TrueCyberSafe campaign.

The training focused on increasing awareness about cybercrime and building the capacity to navigate digital communication safely.

Ms. Pramila Naidu, Chairperson-State Commission for Women and Chairman-Rajya Mahila Ayoga, Karnataka, Mr. BS Angadi, KSPS, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Crime 2, Bengaluru along with Pragya of Truecaller and Mr. Purnendu Singh of CyberPeace Foundation spoke at the event that was attended by students, faculties of various universities, police officers and others held at B.M.S. College of Engineering.

The campaign has already reached close to 3 lakh Indians so far through impactful training sessions in the North Eastern Region and New Delhi. 

Through these awareness sessions, the attendees learned about the recent cyber scams and frauds, safety measures that people can take and the reporting mechanisms available within Truecaller and otherwise that allow for relevant authorities like the Police to take action.

The technical interactive training session at BMS College and R.V. College of Engineering focused on the different types of threats and frauds in the digital world and ended with equipping attendees with best practices, tools and skills needed to protect themselves from harm. 

Numerous safety features within Truecaller like auto block, spam tagging, one-click national helpline, smart SMS and much more were spotlighted as well. 

At the end of the session, the participants were encouraged to become active contributors to #TrueCyberSafe by sharing the knowledge with their friends and family, ensuring that more and more people can help make digital communication safe.
