Ranchi: In its multi-layered drive to curb cybercrime in the state, Jharkhand police have come up with a 36-page handbook on various types of cyber incidents and measures to prevent them.
The book, titled ‘Cyber Security Awareness Handbook’, explains a wide range of cybercrimes and the safety measures in both Hindi and English. Some of the crimes mentioned in the book are OTP sharing fraud, UPI phishing fraud, fraud using Google Docs app, deceit related to OLX, fraud through fake cashback offers, SIM card swapping fraud, deception using fake social media account, sextortion on Facebook, cyber bullying, cyber stalking, ATM clone fraud and online job fraud, among others.
The book also contains dos and don’ts for children, parents and women. For instance, parents have been advised to keep a tab on their kids’ social media usage, besides discussing cyber security measures with them. Women have been advised to be selective in disclosing their personnel details online.
IG Praveen Singh said, “We are planning to promote the book on social media, including WhatsApp and Twitter, on print and electronic media. Besides, our officers would also visit schools to create awareness among the students regarding the handbook.”
