Rade Kovačević, Chief Technology Officer, Grameenphone, said, "We are committed to safeguarding our network and customers' online presence through continuous innovations and modernization.
"Grameenphone believes that our responsible online behavior and activities can help build a #DigitalDefense to protect our and our customers' valuable data, privacy, and assets from cyber attackers", said in a press release from Grameenphone.
In partnership with UNICEF and Telenor, GP has been conducting outreach programs nationwide to create awareness of a safer internet environment for children and sensitize parents, guardians, and teachers.
With the upheaval of the C19 pandemic, a remarkable amount of online traffic has been surging. While e-commerce, social media usage, entertainment, DFS/MFS, and other e-platforms are booming simultaneously, online attackers are becoming more active than ever before using 'Social Engineering' and other fraudulent tricks. Through Social Engineering attacks, an individual's data can be stolen, misused, mishandled, and as a result, it can cause identity theft, financial fraud, and other occurrences.
In this situation cybersecurity has become the top priority in the new-normal era to ensure safe access, data protection, secure connectivity, and privacy, the press release also stated.
Grameenphone, the connectivity partner to the Digital Bangladesh journey, expresses its firm commitment by observing "Security Day" to raise awareness and understanding of security's importance and encourage its customers and employees to become security ambassadors and act responsibly.
As a connectivity partner to the Digital Bangladesh journey, Grameenphone is working to keep the internet safe and create awareness among the customers and employees about the danger of cyberthreats so that Digital-Defense can be formed.
To create awareness, Grameenphone has also relaunched the online etiquette awareness drive 'Internet er Duniya'e Jante Hobe, Kothay Apnar Thamte Hobe' (In the world of the Internet, you have to know where to draw the line).
