Noida police has instructed 70 internet café owners to install new software in their computers to prevent cyber crime. This is being done with the view of ensuring cyber security in the city.
Noida police in partnership with Ideacts innovation launched the software ‘iCafe Manager' on December 30 as a move to curb cyber crimes. The internet cafes in Noida can obtain this software for free.
The DSP (crime), Triveni Singh said that it is a step to make sure cyber management and security in the city and the café owners can play their part in maintaining national security.
Cyber crimes are a real nuisance to the society and many are unaware of the cyber crimes happening and its manifestations. Cyber cafes remain a common target to many malpractices and it needs to be well regulated.
The new software also helps in accounting management, user data storage and terminal management apart from providing security.
Details like name, address, photo ID, and digital photo capture can be easily done and searched without any problem of storage. iCafe Manager is also within the regulations of Guidelines for Cyber Café (new Information Technology Act) Rules, 2011 under the IT act.
This effort will make people aware of the cyber crimes, its impact on the society and is also a way to educate them about the prevention of cyber crimes. This move by the police deserves great appreciation and is certainly a great way to manage cyber crimes to a large extent. The new software can be downloaded by internet café owners here.
