Kaspersky Lab’s awards campaign to spread Internet safety message

By : |August 7, 2017 0

Kaspersky Lab has launched an awards campaign in the Asia-Pacific region. The campaign called Goondus Awards is launched to educate the public and spread awareness about Internet safety.

The Goondus Awards campaign is inviting submissions from the public on Internet mistakes and faux pas that have led to reputational, financial or property damage or loss of individuals.

“We want to educate the people about safer Internet behaviours and to showcase real world examples of missteps leading to some form of loss or damage. While some stories may be humorous and incredulous, the repercussions and damage were real and in some cases severe,” explained Altaf Halde, MD, Southeast Asia, Kaspersky Lab. He added,”As all our entries are entirely anonymous, we’re encouraging a community led campaign to drive home the message that only safe practices will make the Internet safer for the users.”

The Goondus Awards want to remind the users that the Internet is not safe from cyber criminals and they need to be vigilant and maintain Internet etiquette to protect themselves. The Goondus Awards campaign acts as an initiative to raise cyber security awareness in an engaging form through sharing of personal experiences. It also serves to help web visitors foster positive and pleasant online experience.

“With the ease of access to the Internet, users have developed a sense of complacency or even a mild form of naivety in their daily digital lives, potentially lending themselves to becoming the victims of cyber crimes,” the company said. The Goondus Awards website can be accessed at http://goondusawards.com.

In wake of the recent cyber attacks that hit various tech companies, the initiative by Kaspersky Labs could be a blessing in disguise.
