In the two-pronged campaign, IT solutions firm SYGITECH will run a pan-India public awareness programme on the threat of data breach, and start a petition urging the Indian government to firm up data-privacy laws.

New Delhi, April 13, 2018: Digital India campaign was started by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the objective to make digital services accessible to every citizen. But then, with the benefits and advantages of digital revolution also come the threat and scare of the data breach. People, in general, are not aware of the extent and expanse of the issue, and so is the existing law structure. Raising awareness around the issue, SYGITECH, a tech solutions startup has launched extensive campaign #DataSafe for data security.

A signature petition, addressed to the IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, seeking strict data security laws is live and attracting public support.

Public Awareness

The IT firm will conduct a series of workshops in educational institutions, RWAs, and corporates to make the public aware of risks involved and measures that they can take to safeguard their data online. The workshops will give an insight to the weak points and platforms wherefrom personal data gets leaked, and how people can ensure safety of their private information. Being unaware of the nuances of data breach and social media settings, public at large misses out on putting those checks in place, and hence, is susceptible to undue exposure.

Talking about the public awareness campaign, CEO Aniruddh Singh said, "It's quite shocking to see that despite the whole Facebook fiasco, most people still think that the things they post online and their data on social media has no value and there is no point keeping it safe or worrying about it. Little do they understand the magnanimity of this impending danger to their data getting leaked. We intend to create an awareness about the risks involved and precautionary measures that can be taken to safeguard the data."
