Need of Media Information Literacy in Cyber Crime

Dr. Sewa Singh Bajwa [4]

Abstract: This paper explores the increasing prevalence of cybercrime in India and the urgent need for digital literacy to mitigate its risks. The digital world, while offering numerous benefits, has also given rise to new forms of criminal activity. Cybercrime, including hacking, identity theft, phishing, malware attacks, and more, poses a significant threat to individuals and businesses. The situation in India is particularly concerning, with a sharp rise in cyber-attacks in recent years. The paper emphasizes the role of digital literacy in combating cybercrime, highlighting its importance in identifying potential threats, protecting personal information, and responding appropriately to cyber-attacks. It also discusses the challenges to achieving digital literacy in India, such as lack of access to technology, inadequate infrastructure, and a lack of awareness and training. The paper concludes by suggesting ways to promote digital literacy, including providing access to technology, creating digital resources, offering training and education, encouraging digital citizenship, fostering a culture of learning, and conducting public awareness campaigns.
