The “Stay Safe Online” campaign has launched as part of India’s presidency of the G20

The Indian Minister of Electronics and Information Technology, Ashwini Vaishnaw, has launched a new campaign called “Stay Safe Online” as part of India’s presidency of the G20. This campaign aims to raise awareness among citizens about the importance of staying safe online, given the widespread use of social media platforms and the increasing adoption of digital payments in India. The campaign is expected to inform people of all ages about the risks of cyber attacks and provide them with the necessary knowledge to protect themselves online.
“India believes in the philosophy of inclusion. India’s population scale and open source ‘public digital platforms’ such as UPI and Aadhaar have delivered economic and social inclusion and spurred innovation. The two campaigns launched today have the humanitarian way of thinking,” Vaishnaw said while launching the campaign.

In addition to the “Stay Safe Online” campaign, Vaishnaw also launched the “G20 Digital Innovation Alliance” (G20-DIA). This alliance is aimed at identifying and promoting innovative digital technologies developed by startups from G20 nations and invited non-member nations that can address the needs of humanity in key sectors such as agri-tech, health-tech, ed-tech, fin-tech, secured digital infrastructure, and circular economy.

During India’s G20 presidency, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) will focus on three main areas: digital public infrastructure (DPI), cyber security, and digital skill development. These efforts, along with the “Stay Safe Online” campaign and the G20-DIA program, will be coordinated by the Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG). The MeitY aims to advance the vision of a digitally transformed global digital economy through innovation and a future-ready, digitally skilled workforce in a secure cyber environment.
