The topic of cybersecurity is increasingly discussed nowadays. 51.8% of all Internet operations are performed by bots (simple autonomous programs), which e.g. allow searching in web browsers. In many cases, they are abused for example to break the protection of personal profiles on social networks or to attack websites. Up to 90,000 websites are hacked in the world every day in this way.
Therefore we are convinced that education and awareness raising in cybersecurity are essential.
The need of awareness raising in the field of Internet security has been already discussed by professionals for a long time. We are a company interested in supporting quality projects, therefore we are pleased to announce that the fund set up by SK-NIC, whose launch and first calls are expected this autumn, will be focused on cybersecurity and Internet education projects.
In 2019, we have already actively participated in projects such as IT Fitness Test, Kry-sa or Junior Internet Amavet. We continue to raise awareness about pitfalls of the Internet world by our current support of the Slovak movie „Who’s Next?
As its creators say, topics of harm, hate, harassment or online narcissism are included in the movie. Modern celebrities earn money by shooting or photographing something extraordinary to attract as many viewers as possible. Do you know what they are able to do to boost their movie web traffic?
The filmmakers continuously publish videos and photos from movie recording, where you can see what kind of danger young people face for a few thousands of “likes”. Popular „likes“ are currently an open topic and many governments or even social networks themselves are considering their cancellation or regulation in the context of the above.
As an interesting fact to say – several unique songs were created for the movie. One of them is sung by Celeste Buckingham, a popular Slovak singer.
The premiere of this fairly awarded movie will be on August 22, 2019 (official trailer).
