(PRESS RELEASE) THE HAGUE, 20-Dec-2022 — /EuropaWire/ — Annachiara Sarto, director of CRO Cyber Rights Organization, was invited to India’s most prestigious university on 13th of December to speak on Cybercrime in front of students and lecturer and to establish a partnership with what is known as India’s Oxford: DPU Dr.D.Y. Patil B-School.
CRO Cyber Rights Organization looks to India and India looks to CRO. Thus was born a solid partnership between the University of Pune and Cyber Rights Organization, the organization founded by Master Mind Andrea Baggio and Juan Ricardo Palacio, former CEO of Reputationup, and led by Director Annachiara Sarto and Researcher Silvia Semenzin. “It is the best university in the Indian country,” says Annachiara Sarto after the workshop held at the university and after the signing of the partnership, “India is a state strongly affected by the Cybercrime phenomenon and at the same time strongly evolving. The partnership created with Cyber Rights Organization serves precisely to create a strong link between our activities as an international organization and the cultural institutions that train and prepare the citizens and leaders of tomorrow”.
The country is the second largest online market in the world with 560 million users exposed to high rates of digital crime daily. In 2019 alone, according to data collected by India’s National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), 27,248 cases of cybercrime were reported to the authorities, underreported and unreported, an estimated three times as many. In any case, largely doubled the 11,592 cases recorded by the same bureau in 2015.
Annachiara Sarto’s institutional visit to India’s most renowned university was the occasion to proceed
with a Lectio on the topic of Cybercrime related to Cyber Civil Rights. Also strongly supporting this
partnership was University Lecturer Dr. Mohd.O. Ahmad, a member of Cyber Rights Organization’s
internal advisory board as Head of Sustainability, as well as a member of the United Nations Economic
and Social Commission, manager and facilitator of the Saint-Jean Carénage Global Young Leaders Hub in France. “We talked about Child sexual abuse material, GDPR, Cyber Bullying, Cyber Stalking, online violence, hacking of personal devices, financial fraud, phishing, image-based sexual abuse, sustainable communication for companies, Cyber Peace between States, Cyber Civil Rights, and much more,” briefly explains CRO Cyber Rights Organization Director Annachiara Sarto, “the thing that makes me most proud is the signing of the partnership that will see CRO play an active part in the realization of in-house training courses with students from the University of Pune on Cybercrime and Cybersecurity issues related to fundamental human rights. The purpose of this crucial partnership with the DPU Dr.D.Y. University.Patil B-School is precisely to support the formation of the curricula of young Indian undergraduates. “The Internet moves fast in India and around the world, and with the same speed cyber criminals also move,” concludes Annachiara Sarto, “what the CRO Cyber Rights Organization will be able to do in India will be the beginning of a dense network of collaborations that will be activated all over the world to fight and oppose all forms of digital violence.”
