Chief of Defence Staff, General Bipin Rawat will inaugurate the 14th edition of ‘c0c0n’, an annual Hacking and Cyber Security Briefing, which will be held virtually from Nov 10-13. The conference, which is being conducted by Kerala Police in association with two non-profit organisations, Society for the Policing of Cyberspace (POLCYB) and Information Security Research Association (ISRA), would primarily discuss online scams and defences during the lockdown period.
About the conference:
- The theme of this year’s ‘c0c0n’ is Improvise, Adapt and Overcome.
- The conference is being held in such a way that online security is beneficial even to children in the state where many crimes are taking place with the shift to online classes.
- The conference is being held virtually so that people from across the globe can attend the event as the 13th edition of ‘c0c0n’ last year saw more than 6,000 attendees from around the world.
- The conference “aims to discuss at the international level the challenges facing the digital world during the COVID period and the solutions needed to overcome them”.
