Unlock 2 has been done to control corona infection. In Unlock 2, cybercrime has increased more than expected. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and State Bank of India (SBI) have also given an advisory on cybercrimes. The central bank has issued a statement in this regard. According to this, there has been an increase in the cases of cyber fraud in recent times. The thugs have made innocent people their prey. This fraud is sometimes done in the name of meeting the needs of KYC, sometimes it is done by greed.
According to the cyber expert Pawan Duggal on this matter, most of the companies do not have adequate security measures to work from home. There is not a strong framework and there is no strong data protection law. The challenge increases considerably. On the one hand, where there is a challenge to save your own data in front of consumers, on the other hand, the company’s data has to be protected. There is no doubt that cyber dent has increased in the present time. Not only the employees of IT sector, but ordinary employees also need to pay attention to their cybersecurity.
