In the digital age, the foundation for a thriving educational ecosystem lies in the National Education Policy of 2020 (NEP 2020), where cybersecurity emerges as a critical component. The policymakers and educational institutions must work together to develop specific guidelines and initiatives that prioritize online financial security. Protecting financial transactions, sensitive data, and promoting safe online practices for all stakeholders in the education sector becomes imperative to comprehensively address cyber threats. The significance of shielding sensitive information like credit card details, bank account numbers, social security numbers, and other personally identifiable data cannot be underestimated. By being proactive and vigilant in safeguarding their data, individuals can significantly reduce the risk of falling victim to cybercrimes and fraudulent activities.

An inclusive cyber safety training initiative in education involves parents, educators, administrators, and policymakers. Emphasizing collective responsibility, it fosters informed individuals who champion cyber safety. This ensures a safer online environment, guides children, integrates cybersecurity education, and implements robust security measures. Through this collective effort, we can foster a culture of digital responsibility and resilience, creating a safer online environment for the younger generation. As the educational ecosystem embraces online financial security training, it not only protects individuals from potential cyber threats but also strengthens the overall integrity of the digital education system. Ultimately, this paves the way for a secure and flourishing digital ecosystem in education, aligning with the vision set forth in NEP 2020.
