HYDERABAD, Sep 11 (The CONNECT) – Criminals have gone digital.
With the world going the digital way due to the distancing forced by COVID, crooks have also adopted the virtual route to cheat gullible people, said M. Mahender Reddy, Director-General of Police – Telangana.
Speaking as the chief guest at Society for Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC)'s Annual General Meeting Reddy called for setting up the Centre of Excellence – COE to handle the issues of Cyber Crimes.
He urged the industry to come forward and join hands in setting up the COE to address and counter all the Cyber Crimes in Telangana and set up an example for the rest of India.
The DGP suggested SCSC organise many more inclusive programs for all the new verticals and spread its safety security programs across all the verticals and also spread the services to other districts of Telangana to replicate the SCSC and help for the growth of the industry and the business.
Stating that the youth turning into criminals is a socio-economic issue, Reddy suggested increasing employment opportunities for channelizing the brains the right way. The Police Commissioner of Hyderabad could take lead to drive this engagement programme of through SCSC for the unemployed youth.
M. Stephen Raveendra, the Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad and Chairman SCSC said, a rare combination of the Industry Body and the Police helped serve the society during the pandemic that led not only funding but setting up of hospitals, ICU Units at the government hospitals, sponsoring the ambulances and conducting vaccination drives.
