This collaboration aims to increase public awareness on the need to stay safe and secure online and leverages the theme – Do Your Part, #BeCyberSmart. CERT-In and Koo App will boost awareness on issues such as phishing, hacking, personal information security, password and PIN management, avoiding clickbait and protecting one’s privacy while using public Wi-Fi.

Koo App will run this campaign across multiple Indian languages to strengthen the outreach amongst internet users from across the country. A slew of contests will be held to enhance engagement and knowledge sharing on this crucial subject.

Aprameya Radhakrishna, co-founder & CEO, Koo App said, “As a unique social media platform that empowers Indians to engage and connect across multiple languages, we seek to empower our users with crucial information pertaining to aspects of cyber security and privacy – which is needed to make the interconnected world much more secure and resilient.”

Dr Sanjay Bahl, director general, CERT-In said, “People are the weakest link in cyber security. To sensitise citizens and increase cyber security awareness amongst them, CERT-In is observing Cyber Security Awareness Month during October 2021 with the theme ‘Do Your Part, #BeCyberSmart’. Towards this, various citizen-oriented campaigns as well as training programmes for the technical cyber security community in India are in progress.”
