“We are continually striving to get the latest update on cybercrime and latest cyber security development to keep the public aware. We try to churn out best cyber insights that can help corporate, cyber experts, cyber institutes, law enforcement agencies and law enforcement agencies in preparing for the future and decision making,” said Shashank Shekhar, Editor, The420.in.

CQ 100 or Cyber Quotient 100, is a unique questionnaire developed by the Future Crime Research Foundation. It consists of 100 unique questions about cyber hygiene, cyber security, cyber law, cybercrime, banking, and financial rules to assess stakeholders’ present preparedness. Based on the results, we assist them in curating training and workshop modules, which is then assessed using the CQ100 Test to ensure progress.
CQ-100 is more than just a set of cyber knowledge examinations; it also acknowledges outstanding cyber security experts and their contributions to the field.
