Computers are everywhere. They have brought a revolution in what all we can do and how we can do whatever we used to do. Banking, Scientific Research, Medicine, Automation, Engineering, Media – think of it and you will find that computers are what are powering these sectors. You can make computers that make other computers. Computers, as a technology, is here to stay, and it will only keep on getting better and better.
In spite of what all we see computers doing in the modern days, a computer cannot think. The intelligence that we are trying to infuse into computers is only limited by the boundaries of human thinking about what could be extracted out of the computers.
A computer is only as smart as the person who uses it. It is good or bad depending on who uses it. And instead of computer and other electronic devices penetrating our daily life in every aspect, we still do not understand it.
The above quote is the idea behind this project. This project is a step in educating you about computers. I had started writing easy to understand small articles on computers and technology for police personnel. The aim was to compile a list of articles which may be used later on for training purposes. While writing them, I realized that they could be shared for the consumption of everyone. For easy publication, sharing and availability of such articles, this website was made.
The nature of The Cyber Cops website will be purely academic and occasional posts will be made onto the website. The website will host articles written by me as well as other like minded colleagues and friends of mine as guest authors. All posts will be made by people who are enthusiastic about technology and are keen on sharing our knowledge. This website has been made with the motive of sharing knowledge and experience so that it might be helpful to others. The aim of this website is to present content that is in simple language and easy to understand for a person who is not from a technical background. I sincerely hope that you benefit from the content.
We start from the very basics of computers. With time, the details will get as technical they can get.
We advocate digital privacy.
Majority of the content on this website is free for all to browse. Some of the content will be viewable only to members who sign up using their .nic.in or .gov.in email id. This restriction is done because of sensitivity of the content.
the name “The Cyber Cops”
The primary intention of “The Cyber Cops” is to train people in general, and cops specifically.
The aim in training cops is two-fold:
- Helping them understand technology and use it on a daily basis so as to reap benefits of the same.
- Helping them understand technology enough to handle cyber criminals and respond to cyber crimes.
The aim in training people in general is:
- Helping them understand technology.
- Helping them avoid falling prey to various privacy, security and safety threats.
The logo resembles an Indian cop working on a laptop, thus showing cyber-expertise. This exactly is the aim of the website – to help our cops understand technology and benefit from it.
