Student Clubs

Cyber Crime Club

Cyber Crime Club (CCC) was introduced in 2021 with the primary objective of creating awareness about Cyber Crime in the society.

Objectives

The objective of this study is to educate and create awareness among the student’s community on use of technology, internet, social media and its implications on possible cybercrimes. Through our Police Cyber Club and the Hackathon Project we can create awareness among the student’s community as well as among the common peoples.

Scope of the Cyber Club

The scope of the cyber club is to explore, create awareness and gain more knowledge about the cybercrime. Also examine the level of ethical and security awareness among college students.

Why Cyber security Awareness is Important
  • These days, you don’t even need to click on an infected link in order to wind up with hidden malware that can log your keystrokes, scan your system for personal files, or hijack your online banking sessions.
  • Phishers frequently spoof websites, email addresses, and social media profiles to manipulate user trust and gain access to personal information.
  • Popular services like free Wi-Fi, ATMs, and public computers can all lead to data compromise, financial loss, and identity theft.
  • As we increasingly digitize our lives, we put ourselves at greater risk. Whether you are about to enter your first or final year of college, it’s never too late to brush up on internet safety tips and increase your cyber security awareness.
  • The best way to fight cybercrime is through prevention. Use the following statistics, stories, and tips to arm yourself both on and off campus
Social Media Dangers
  • According to a 2011 study by Experian Simmons, 98% of college-aged students use social media. YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Whatsapp are the most popular options among teens and young adults, followed by Twitter, Pinterest, and Reddit. Social media can offer a beneficial, direct pathway to connection with others, but there are plenty of risks associated with social networking, too.
  • Social media sites leave users open to bullying and harassment from anonymous trolls, mean-spirited acquaintances, and overbearing friends, family members, or partners. One wrong move on social media can lead to hacking, distribution of private photos, or financial scams.
