Abstract—Cyber security is the activity of protecting information and information systems (networks, computers, data bases, data centers and applications) with appropriate procedural and technological security measures. Firewalls, antivirus software, and other technological solutions for safeguarding personal data and computer networks are essential but not sufficient to ensure security. As our nation rapidly building its Cyber-Infrastructure, it is equally important that we educate our population to work properly with this infrastructure. Cyber-Ethics, Cyber-Safety, and Cyber-Security issues need to be integrated in the educational process beginning at an early age. The valuable aspects for cyber-security are technology, operations and awareness, training and education. This paper focuses issues related to cyber-security in India and presents various methods in bringing awareness at founder levels in educational system.
Index Terms—Cyber-infrastructure, social-networking, brain –compatible, cyber–safety, cyber-ethics.
