A boy of 15 goes on to social media to play games, to share his pictures and make new friends. He has his own ideas in a sport say cricket and has a favorite player. He says his idol is the best on a post and gets into a verbal fight on social media. Comments trashes out on him till he is no longer able to handle them. He becomes a victim of bullying now. But he is against going to his parents for help because the only solution they have is to come out of the social media and concentrate on something else.
This will definitely be a biggest setback for him. This solution does not help him in bringing the problem to an end. The bully will find a new target now. The bullying has not stopped and will never will unless it is handled the way it should be.
It becomes a great stress for him and he is not able to concentrate on anything else now. He feels dejected and inferior and finally gives in to failures. He will never train his mind to overcome a problem. He will always focus on avoiding a problem.
This is a clear case of lack of Cyber Security Awareness. All social media have a way of protecting every post against comments and you can screen the comments before posting in some. There are so many privacy setting and policies in every social media. Also the method to report an incident if one occurred is very simple and transparent. But the knowledge to do the same is missing.
This awareness about cyber security will help them in being cyber safe and cultivates a sense of responsibility in using the internet for better things as well.
We, at JeV!ncy strive to bring forth this Awareness amidst students of all ages accordingly and prevent the wrong usage of internet from the basic level. Also making the Internet a safe place for the future generation to learn new things and to sculpt their creativity.
