Quad Cyber Challenge:
The Quad Nations are launching Quad Cyber Challenge – a public campaign to improve cyber security across the 4 nations.
- The Internet-users are being invited across the Indo-Pacific and beyond to join the Challenge and pledge to practice safe and responsible cyber habits.
- India’s National Cyber Security Coordinator with National Security Council Secretariat is the coordinating body in this challenge.
- Internet-users worldwide are targets of cybercrime and other malicious cyber threats that can cost trillions of dollars each year and compromise sensitive, personal data. Many successful cyber-attacks can be guarded against by simple preventative measures such as; routinely installing security updates, utilising stronger and regularly changing passwords, and awareness of common online scams, like phishing.
- QUAD is the grouping of four democracies –India, Australia, the US, and Japan that aims to ensure and support a “free, open and prosperous” Indo-Pacific region.
