Large-scale adoption of smart phones, cutting edge technology, cheap data rates have led to cyber threats like online fraud , E-mail accounts  being hacked , cyber stalking , cyber phishing, sexting, screen addiction, digital drugs etc, is the concern of every parent and educator.  Keeping this in mind Cochin Refineries School has initiated  BIKOS –  Better Internet for Kids Online Safety, a project  aimed at creating awareness on Cyber Security among children and modelling a Cyber Safety Policy for schools. The tagline for the project is “Refine Your Click, Define Your Safety”. The project timeline is 7 months with the following two main objectives

  • To sensitize school children on “Child Online Safety”
  • To prepare a Cyber Safety Policy for schools for implementation from academic session 2018-19

The whole project is divided into 6 events from P1 to P6 as follows. First three events (P1 – P3)  were completed very successfully in different venues at Kochi, P4 and P5 are ongoing activities and P6 is scheduled for April 2018 as multi track “Cyber Security” workshops.
