Interpol launches online cyber security awareness campaign.

The Interpol has launched an online campaign to apprise people of major cyber threats in order to help them protect their computer systems, networks and personal information from cyber criminals.

The three-week awareness campaign, from October 4 to 22, will be run primarily through social media. “It will highlight the top threats identified by Interpol's Cybercrime Programme, based on the data collected from member-countries, private-sector partners under the Gateway framework, national cybersecurity agencies and online information-sharing groups,” said the Interpol.

The campaign will also be based on the inputs provided by the Interpol's Financial Crime Unit and Global Financial Crime Task Force. It will focus on ransomware, online scams and phishing, business email compromise, and basic cyber hygiene.

The International Criminal Police Organization, commonly known as Interpol is an international organization that facilitates worldwide police cooperation and crime control. Headquartered in Lyon, France, it is the world's largest international police organization, with seven regional bureaus worldwide and a National Central Bureau in all 194 member states.
