It highlights the latest crime and keeps the audience aware of new threats and ways to protect it.
The motive is to circulate the government’s policy, programs and initiatives in digital space so that it can reach and benefit maximum people.
Along with this, The420 is actively involved in conducting cyber webinars, training and workshops along with industry experts. In a short span of time The420.in has conducted over a dozen virtual events with students, law enforcement agencies and corporate to train and aware them.
Future Crime Research Foundation has created a unique questionnaire – CQ 100 or Cyber Quotient 100. It consists of unique 100 questions related to cyber hygiene, cyber security, cyber law, cybercrime, banking and finance guidelines to access the current preparedness of stakeholders. Based on the result we help them curate a training and workshop module which is again assessed through CQ100 Test to check the progress.
CQ-100 is not limited to cyber knowledge tests but it also recognizes top cyber security professionals and their contribution in this field. The420.in powered by Future Crime Research Foundation came out with the list of CQ100: Meet India’s Most Influential Cyber Warriors and CQ100: Meet The Dynamic Women Changing The Face Of Indian Cyberspace.
