Synopsis of Talk
Being a cybersecurity professional can be a blessing in some ways. They are tech-savvy, intelligent, not easily trapped by phishing emails or social engineering attempts, paranoid, and rarely get scammed. However, this is not attainable for millions of people who get impacted every day by cybercrimes.
The local cybercrime cells in every state are overwhelmed with cybercrime complaints. Unless the cybersecurity community joins hands to work with law enforcement agencies, we will see many young people commit suicide, the elderly losing their life savings, teenagers trapped in sextortion, and similar vicious crimes.
If you are part of the cybersecurity community, learn how to make a difference and support timely intervention to save lives.
