More than four thousand people have become participants in the project. Within its framework, over 50 webinars and 100 meetings dedicated to information security have already been held.
The CyberMoscow project was developed by information security experts to teach young people how to behave correctly on the Internet. Users receive up-to-date knowledge in the field of information security and the development of IT technologies. Today in the project more than four thousand people participate.
During the existence of the project, CyberMoscow specialists have held over 50 webinars and 100 offline information security events, which were joined by about seven thousand students from 20 educational institutions. For example, there are master classes for participants where you can see how fraudsters gain access to personal data and learn how to protect personal information.
“Today, when a large number of events go online, the activities of the project are becoming more and more relevant. Many companies build their work remotely on the network, and we use online services every day to get various services. In this regard, the number of Internet fraudsters is growing, and new ways of deceiving users are emerging. Responding to these risks, CyberMoscow is organizing independent sub-brands within the project, ”said Grigory Pashchenko, CyberMoscow project manager.
Thus, the “Good Card” movement appeared – a series of master classes on banking and financial security. They take place both online and offline. Participants will learn the basics of legal and financial literacy, as well as learn the rules of electronic payments and work with cryptocurrencies.
“The number of bank card holders and, accordingly, users of the online banking system is increasing every day. On the one hand, it is definitely convenient, but fraudsters, even with basic banking knowledge and social engineering skills, can easily steal funds from someone else’s card. Today, there are no specialized structures or projects in Moscow that would be actively involved in combating this problem, ”said Orkhan Davletov, head of the Dobraya Karta movement within the CyberMoscow project.
There is also a separate area for combating fraudulent resources – these can be sites, communities on social networks, applications, illegal digital currency exchangers and other sites.
In the spring, the Digital Volunteers movement emerged. Its members are engaged in monitoring and analyzing social networks and Internet sites popular among young people, where the facts of propaganda of terrorism and extremism are determined.
