NEP 2020 prioritizes the integration of cyber safety education into educational programs, aiming to enhance awareness and provide students with the necessary digital literacy skills for secure internet navigation. In this age of unprecedented digital evolution, nurturing awareness regarding Cyber Hygiene is imperative for our technology-driven society. Cyber Hygiene promotes a sustainable and harmonious coexistence between humanity and technology, ensuring a brighter and more balanced future.

In the contemporary educational landscape, the integration of technology has become ubiquitous, emphasizing the critical need for cyber hygiene training among both students and teachers. As classrooms transition to digital platforms and online resources, the importance of fostering a secure online environment cannot be overstated. Cyber hygiene, encompassing practices that safeguard digital information, is instrumental in equipping individuals with the necessary skills to navigate the digital realm safely. For students, this training cultivates digital literacy and an awareness of online risks, fostering responsible digital citizenship. Teachers, as key influencers, require cyber hygiene training to not only secure sensitive educational data but also to effectively impart these essential skills to their students. Such training is vital in addressing the diverse range of cyber threats, from phishing attacks to data breaches, ensuring the uninterrupted flow of learning activities. Moreover, cyber hygiene is dynamic, and ongoing training is crucial to staying abreast of evolving threats in the ever-changing digital landscape. Ultimately, the implementation of cyber hygiene training in educational institutions is paramount for creating a secure, resilient, and ethically conscious digital learning environment.

In this context, CIET-NCERT organized a training series on ‘ Cyber Safety and Security’ in the first week of every month to create awareness on cyber safety and security among various stakeholders. For the month of January, 2024 it is proposed to conduct a 5 hours online training on “Cyber Hygiene” from 01-05 January, 2024 at 4.00 pm – 5.00 pm by CIET-NCERT to enhance the understanding of teachers, students, teacher educators, and various stakeholders on Cyber Hygiene and its various aspects related to cybersecurity.
