With the increasing cyber crimes of cyber abuse, Privacy breach, cyber stalking, Cyber attacks, cyber world has become quite unsafe, if not taken proper care.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

In short, it works for the security of nations data, protecting netizens (children, families, individuals, youths and all sections of society). Also, a lot of content is being posted on internet which might hurt the sentiments of individual/s or organisation/s, which is morally incorrect and can lead to unpleasant outcomes. We, at NAG also focus on imbibing good morals on how to conduct themselves in the cyber space. it voluntarily advises organisations to rectify the vulnerabilities in their websites and networks to make it more secure and far from the catch of Cyber Criminals (Responsible Vulnerability Disclosure).

Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

We generally conduct free of charge seminars and awarenss campaigns to the masses, however, the charges for trainings and internship programmes and workshops are so minimal that students can afford out of their pocket expenses as a result we have a good turnover. We believe in rendering services to the society and not making profits. We accept donations from organisations and beneficiaries.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

Netizen (Anyone who uses Internet) is our recipient or potential recipient.NAG is India's first & probably Asia's first social organisation working in this field. We aim to build a peaceful co-existence in the cyber space and keep our nation's data and people safe. There are some other play born in the recent years and working on the same concept but the way we differ from them is due to our strong & expert volunteer base which is spread across different countries.
Team

Founding Story

I always had the flair for computers since childhood. But in those days it was a very costly affair to own a computer ; not only that, internet had to be broght from Kolkata to Ranchi. Even then my father gifted me a computer on my 7th birthday. While surfing net i got in touch with some black-hat-hackers online who taught me to hack a system but i wanted to use it constructively.In 2000, when the cyber crimes were on a rise and hackers were quite active and on a destructive mode. Just then it clicked to me that hacking can be used positively for the betterment of the society. I, along with a few other like-minded people started a group in 2003 & it legally got registered in 2006 as a not for profit social organization in Ranchi, Jharkhand
