Police in the city are training, as part of the summer program launched in 2013, 100 students from around the country as well as from other countries in the field of cyber security and cybercrime research. The training will take place between 7 June and 7 July.
The police commissioner, Muhammad Akil, said that this summer’s internship program had received more than 3,800 requests but only 100 seats. “It was a difficult choice, because the requests were submitted from all countries and the best universities.”With qualification, interest, sex and backdrop, we have chosen the apps. This program is designed for learners who are looking to follow a cybercrime or linked career,” he said.
The police said learners will attend 20 interactive sessions with cyber specialists from law enforcement authorities, industry specialists from banks and online financial businesses involved in money transaction apps, and internet giant specialists. The learners will also participate. They will address ideas and case studies related to questions such as ethical hacking, cyber forensics, bug bounty, cyber safety and cybersecurity work.
“I had no concept how intimate coordination cyber-experts and police operate, how they split cases. I will also have the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion about the effect of social media instruments on young people, particularly kids whose influence is mainly the responsibility of the social media.
Students will address topics such as threats to social media and securities, website threats, threats to e-mails, threats to e-commerce and cyber law. Another student from Delhi’s IP University, Manya Bhardwaj, has stated that they will work on projects with cybercrime teams from the municipal police and create modules and apps for the department.
“The municipal police have various technical, unheard case studies. I want to raise consciousness and find a way of helping individuals know how to avoid fraud,” she said. Students who received this training previously assisted the police with case inquiries. In August 2016, a group of learners assisted the police fix the situation where a 24-year-old woman’s social media accounts were hacked and the accused sent out objectionable emails within 15 days to her colleagues.
“These learners attend Bachelors and Master of Computer and Law classes with a specialization in cyber security,” said Rakshit Tandon, an expert in cyber safety who conducts the workshop.
