Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) of Daffodil International University ( DIU) organized a workshop today (October 31, 2022) on 'Cyber ​​Security Awareness among Internet Users' to raise the awareness of cyber security issues among the students of DIU. Mr. Shyam Sunder Shikder, Chairman of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) was present in the workshop as the chief guest. Professor Dr. M. Lutfar Rahman, Vice-Chancellor of DIU presided over the event. Brig. Gen. Md. Nasim Parvez, Director (BTRC), Md. Ishaque Miah, Additional DIG (CID) of Bangladesh Police, Kamrul Ahsan, Systems Manager, Bangladesh Bank, Prof. Dr. Touhid Bhuiyan, Head of the Department of CSE, Md. Maruf Hasan, Director, Cyber Security Center of DIU and Abu Taher Khan, Project Director of Industrial Innovation Center of DIU were also present as special guests in the workshop.

While addressing as the chief guest BTRC Chairman Shyam Sunder Shikder said, we are constantly making arrangements to delete numerous contents from various social media. This means we also need to know a lot about our users' internet usage. In this regard, Daffodil students must come forward, because I don't usually see such excellent labs and facilities anywhere around the country.

DIU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr. M. Lutfar Rahman said, it is a big achievement for us that students are learning from such workshops; but our responsibility is to spread the knowledge of this kind of organization among the common people, that responsibility should be taken by this young society.

At present, out of about 12 crore internet users in the country, a large number of people are suffering from misuses of the internet in various ways. As one of the main reasons for these sufferings, most of the studies have revealed the carelessness and ignorance of people using the Internet. Therefore, the CSE department of Daffodil International University, as a first step to increase the awareness of the common people in this regard, looks at the knowledge of its students and gradually encourages them to spread this awareness among the common people.
