|Special session of Cybersecurity Centre of IT&E Department in October 2018|
We were told that for multiple persons, the best approach is to crop out only one person's image and then put it on reverse image search.
We were also advised that we should not forward any suspicious images before checking alternative multiple sources and that we should use common sense and logic and not assume that since the sender of an image is known to us, his forwarded image is genuine.
On a slightly different matter, we were informed that the website https://cybercrime.gov.in/ can be used to report, even anonymously, cybercrime complaints relating to women. MAKAUT, the Maulana Abul Kalam University of Technology, West Bengal submitted a proposal to be associated with the department's Cybersecurity Cell. MAKAUT, incidentally, runs several cybersecurity courses routinely.
We also decided to develop some simple DO's and DONT's for guidance of people and departments when cyberattacks happen especially in critical infrastructures like power, traffic, transportation, metros, airports etc.
We have also published a tender seeking applications from institutions who want to help set up a helpline for cyber-crime victims
