    Cybersafety Sessions @ Sri VIS

    “If you think technology can solve all your security problems, then you don’t understand the problem and you don’t understand technology.”
    - Bruce Schneier

    On Friday, 27 December 2019, Sri Venkateshwar International School, Dwarka, organized a series of enlightening and interactive workshops on cyber security in three sessions. The morning session was solely for students of classes IX-XI followed by the afternoon sessions for classes VII - IX students, parents and SVIS staff.

    The experts were Cyber Safety Guru Mr Rakshit Tandon and Mr Atul Khosla, Pro VC of Shoolini University, Solan, HP.

    Mr Rakshit Tandon, the Cyber Security evangelist has an experience of more than a decade in security domain and is the Member Advisory to National Cyber Safety and Security Standards. With a number of accolades to his credit, Mr Tandon is increasingly becoming popular with the children with his keenness to educate them on cyber security.

    In a very interesting session with the Venkateshwarites, he stressed upon the measures to be adopted while using the internet. Various myths about anonymity of users were broken. Gullibility of users was exposed. Essential safety measures to be adopted while working on the internet were highlighted. He shared his experiences and briefed the participants about the trend of crimes he had observed and analysed during the cases he had investigated. He explained various terms such as Data Tampering, Spoofing, Phishing, Hacking, UPI and VOIP. Through presentation and case studies, he discussed the heinous crimes related to Cyberspace.

    Mr Tandon also discussed various issues such as Identity Theft, Cyber Terrorism, Stalking, Cyber Bullying, Online Banking Frauds and Pornography. He advised everyone to use Two Step Security, keep correct settings on the web as well as applications and a safe usage of Debit and Credit Cards. Mr. Tandon not only guided the audience on how to be secure while being online but also talked about the penalty and punishment one has to bear for committing Cyber Crimes under the Indian Cyber Law.

    It is a well-known fact that prevention is always better than cure. The sessions ended in more awareness about cyber crime and enhanced understanding of the need to exercise caution while using AI and technology.

      We believe in constant learning, and relearning

          National Mathematics Day is celebrated to commemorate the birth of math genius Srninivasa Ramanujan.

          President of Ramanujan Foundation, Prof. Dinesh Singh arrived and delivered a keynote address to Senior Wing students, mathematics faculty of school, visiting teachers and parents.

          He won hearts and touched the soul of students and faculty.

          Suddenly, we found that mathematics was gradually found to be the most amazing subject.

          His discourse bordered on illuminating the community about the role of Indian mathematicians who much before Christ gave us the Pythagorean theorem and other theorems.

          Sea route was found using calculus. Indian sailors had travelled to Africa much before Vasco De Gama

A plethora of awards in various categories were kept in reserve for mentors too whose unfailing support in students’ success was recognized during the programme. The last leg of the programme was the play ‘Gandhi’ which through its experiential shifts and realistic depiction of the Mahatma’s life enlivened the mood of the programme. The Gandhian philosophy was well propagated through the play.

                        It is not everyday that 'Pickbrain' Giri Balasubramaniam comes to your school and shares his thoughts and conducts a Question Answer session with young prodigies of grade 5-11, parents, visiting teachers and school faculty.
                        Dec 10, 2019 was one such day and we are absolutely in awe of the best Quizmaster of India.

                        Very humble and a brilliant motivational speaker. And we thought he is a Quizmaster.

                        "Your students are one of the best", he said.

                        And the students answered his questions so well that even we were left awe struck.

                        The questions raised were, like, how can we maintain focus? When will Giri's biography be published in GAP books? How can we make the right choices? How do we trust the choices we make? How do we create opportunities? How can I choose between two hobbies that I just love?

                        GAP Series of books are being liked a lot by students and staff. Mr Giri left saying, "I will be back."
