Panaji : Youth are becoming more and more victims of cybercrime, and Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant warned them not to fall into the “trap” on Monday.
During the launch of the 5th Adivasi Vidhyarthi Sammelan in South Goa, Sawant made a statement stating that cybersecurity is crucial in today’s world. Individuals are becoming imprisoned by it. It is entangling young people. Cyber traps shouldn’t befall them.”
It was stated by him that young people often do not realize the true worth of their parents’ purchased cell phones.
“Use mobile phones for good purpose, and be aware of cyber safety while operating them. Pass on the knowledge on cyber safety to others, so that they don’t fall prey to cyber traps,” he added.
Sawant also cautioned the youth about the gangs involved in cybercrimes, who trap innocent people.
“Cyber gangs are working from many places. Though we have a cyber security cell, you should take care and understand how to come out of such traps,” the Chief Minister said.
