What is CyberTahaffuz?
Cyber Tahaffuz (Tahaffuz an Urdu language word that means Protection) as the name suggests it is one of its kind project devised especially for girls to educate them with sea of cyber opportunities and to identify the risks they are facing while using Cyber oriented softwares , servers , sites and applications.
What we do?
Our vision for this project is to reach out to young women of Pakistan and educate them regarding cyber security issues yet this project is not limited to the education of women, our mission is to make Pakistan digitally safe in every possible way. Starting from school level to UG level.
The following elements would be included in the project
- Cyber security awareness: A seminar which will focus on how people are affected by cybercrimes worldwide, what are the stats of Cyber Crimes in Pakistan and worldwide , What type of crimes are committed worldwide.
- Cyber child protection: A program for Schools/College level students in which teams of volunteers would visit different schools and giving training on how to stay safe online. Internet is the basic necessity but the problem is our young generation is not only wasting time using this facility yet it is creating many other problems for the immature minds.
- I Agree: While installing new software and application we just simply click I agree to the terms and conditions provide yet we never actually read it and if we do we would never agree, An initiative which will identify the such terms and conditions which exploit ones privacy.
- No to Cyber Bullying: An ethical training for youngsters-As youngsters we might find it fascinating to bully others , be it calling them by names on internet or posting stuff that might hurt them pictures , videos and personal chats. Yet we never consider what harm we are causing. There are some cases where individuals committed suicide after facing such stuff.
- CyberTahaffuz E–compingn: An e-education campaign in which we will share videos of different cases that happened within Pakistan also the interviews and voices of those girls who suffered yet survived and a few who lost their lives.
