As part of the celebration of October Cyber Awareness Month around the world, Career Pro BD, an organization working on youth skill development and career, held a discussion meeting on Wednesday at Dhaka City College in the capital to raise awareness on cyber security. Star Cineplex Chief Human Resource Officer and Career Pro BD Advisor Laila Nazneen chaired the meeting and City College Principal Professor Bedar Uddin Ahmed delivered a welcome speech.
GM Farooq, Senior Programmer and Cyber Security Analyst and Information Systems Auditor of Rupali Bank, imparted special training to hundreds of college students to increase the awareness of cyber security issues. Popular content creator and founder of ‘Thought of Shams’ page Shams Afrodh Chowdhury highlighted the experience of being a victim of cybercrime at various times among the students.
Under the direction of dubbing director and voice artist Soheli Aziz Mou, Assistant Manager of FocusOn Didarul Islam Riyad, Psychotherapist and Counseling Expert Tanbita Ghosh, Daily Kalbela ICT Reporter Solaiman Hossain Shaon, Dentist Sajjad Aman Himel and others also spoke at the event.
Congratulating Career Pro BD for organizing such a program, Dhaka City College Principal Professor Bedar Uddin Ahmed said, it is a timely arrangement. In today’s digital age, we should be extremely vigilant and aware of cyber security. Young people are the biggest victims of cybercrime. So there should be more such arrangements to increase awareness among them.
Laila Nazneen said Career Pro BD deals with skill development and careers of young students and professionals. This organization has been doing things like mentoring, one-to-one sessions, counseling for the youth. Cyber security awareness among the youth is very important. Since its establishment in 2018, we have held this event for students every year, except two years due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
