School students in most of the metros are registered to the social networking sites and indulge in chatting and other related activities that do not fit the school functionalities. Educational institutes in Pune in collaboration with NASSCOM are now in the process of setting up a cyber security support group in each school in the city.
The group aims at reducing misuse of computers, especially the internet, at educational institutes. Each school will have at least one such group, which will monitor the usage of computers by the students. It will also keep an eye on the usage of social networking sites, so that misuse of these sites can be avoided.
The group aims to institutue the cyber securiy systems in upto 25 schools till the end of February.
