important to train today’s young generation in cyber security because technologies flow in their veins. It’s not only a want but a need to their lifestyle. A direction to this generation in the cyber sector can lead to civilian destruction. It is a duty of people like us who are cyber security experts to give a appropriate knowledge and direction to the students to create a better tomorrow. It’s my firm belief that if everyone is a hacker then no one is a hacker. ”
The event started initially with knowing the students preview on hacking then shifting to explain them what hacking actually is and what the spectrum of issues related to it. Then moving on to what happens every minute on the internet.
Mr.Ravi Kumar in his address emphasised on the need to deliberate on enhancing the efficient information and communications technology infrastructure, cyber-crime, Legal remedies and resources to create and support an effective information technology system.

reflected by question like “How can we protect our data while using search engines and social networking sites, without stopping to use them”. A student named Ankita was curious to know about the working of ransom wares and how to safeguard from them in the upcoming future.
The principle’s viewpoint to this was “we should in build these kind of activities in our syllabus. We at Doons Public School will try to take this knowledge given to the students further”.
