The Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) has partnered with SafeTeensOnline, a non-profit startup from the US, to launch the Telangana Cyber Safety Bootcamp. This virtual bootcamp will take place on October 20 and 21 and aims to enhance digital safety for students in grades 6 to 12.
The bootcamp will cover various topics such as digital citizenship responsibilities, online risks, cyber etiquette, privacy, cyber security careers, educational paths, and their relevance in different fields. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in the STO Cyber Safety Challenge, where they can showcase their creativity and knowledge through videos or posters related to the discussed topics.
The program includes expert-led sessions and is designed to empower the next generation of digital citizens. It emphasizes the importance of being aware of cyber safety in today’s digital world. A senior official from TSIC mentioned that this bootcamp not only teaches students how to stay safe online but also highlights the enriching experience of working in cyber security.
By participating in this two-day bootcamp, students are not only looking out for themselves but also contributing to making the online world safer for everyone.
