The Brunei Computer Emergency Response Team (BruCERT) recently held an awareness talk on cybercrime at St.George's School. The talk took place on 14 January 2021. A total of 200 students from Year 7 to Year 9 were in attendance.
The talk covered issues such as Brunei's Computer Misuse Act, social media trends and recent online threats such as ransomware. The students were also educated on the pros and cons of online shopping. Students were treated to brain teasers such as spotting the difference between genuine and phishing websites and the learning of best practices when making a post online.
The event ended with a Question and Answer session where students were able to explore more on the importance of keeping strong passwords. The students also wanted to know the current methods of identity theft.
