Data Security Council of India (DSCI) and Lockheed Martin(LM) have jointly launched CyberAware, an online portal with interactive content on Cyber Security, for the consumption of small and medium businesses (SMBs), and Vocational Training Institutes.
The new platform includes computer based training modules on cyber threats and Internet security awareness, cyber security games, and videos that showcase real life IT and cyber security scenarios for Industrial Training Institutes, DSCI announced today.
The portal is part of a joint DSCI-Lockheed Martin initiative to increase cyber security awareness of small and medium businesses, vocational training institutes and their workforce. The goal is to create more cyber security aware cultures within their organisations.
The portal and its content were unveiled during the NASSCOM-DSCI Annual Information Security Summit (AISS) 2016. The event was hosted on December 14 and 15 at Hotel Leela Ambience, Gurgaon.
“CyberAware is an educational portal, a key pillar to the DSCI-Lockheed Martin joint awareness program and an effort to empower the workforce of SMBs and Industrial Training Institutes for a safe and secure online presence,” Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Rama Vedashree, CEO, DSCI said.
“We now look forward to scaling it up to pan-India level and intend to disseminate the rich content to all those who are focusing on digitization in a big way“. She added.
Meanwhile Dr. Robie I. Samanta Roy, vice president of Technology Strategy and Innovation, Lockheed Martin said, “Online safety and security is vital to the growth of small and medium-sized businesses in India.”
As the threat landscape changes, cyber security cannot be viewed as an afterthought, but must be built into enterprise digital systems from the outset to ensure optimal information protection. “CyberAware can help educate businesses on functioning in an ever-evolving digital landscape.” Roy added.
