News : Report Cyber Crimes Quickly, Haryana Now Has a Helpline
Gurugam, India, Jan 16, 2019 -- Haryana launched a toll-free number for reporting cyber crimes on Tuesday at a summit on "Digital Innovation and Cyber Security" held in the city on Tuesday. The number was announced by state finance minister Captain Abhimanyu Singh at the Hartron campus.
State principal secretary (electronics & information technology department) Ankur Gupta said that while the state government launched the cyber security policy in 2017, the helpline would help strengthen the framework against cyber crimes.
The state government also launched an e-learning portal, HaryanaISMO.gov.in, aimed at providing information on the ways of securing oneself against cyber threats and keeping children safe. Anyone can log into the portal and avail information.
"As children use mobile phones and internet, they need to be educated about how to keep themselves safe from cyber threats. So in the portal, there is a set of questions for students of different classes which they need to answer," said Gupta.

Singh said that technology was intruding into our lives and it was important that governments alerted and safeguarded people against its consequences.
"Nowadays, children are the biggest users of technology and it is important to make them aware of cyber crimes," he added.
The day-long conference saw participation from representatives of the state police of Maharashtra, Puducherry and Indore, along with members of the industry such as Panasonic and HP.
The Digital Investigation Training & Analysis Centre (DITAC) team of Haryana Police was awarded for smart policing initiatives by Elets Technomedia Pvt Ltd. The award was received by IGP (security) Saurabh Singh. The DITAC centre in Gurgaon was launched by chief minister M L Khattar and is equipped with a cyber forensics lab and the latest technology to solve crimes.
Hartron officials said that data theft, ransomware and bank fraud were a major concern for governments across the world and it was important to regularly update governance systems.
