Cyber Crime Helpline | Indian Cyber Army

The CYBER HELPLINE project (NATIONAL Action on Cyber Crime) is a running from 17th October 2015. It has a National scope and is conceived as a resource to support, in a pragmatic manner, States that are prepared to implement the Helpline on Cybercrime. It was Initiative by Indian Cyber Army, Which was founded as Proprietorship in 2011 and Registered as NGO under Indian Trusts Act 1882 in September 2016.
The CYBER HELPLINE project aims at enabling authorities to engage in national cooperation on cybercrime and primary relief to cyber victims. More generally it aims at developing social harmony, training and cooperation at the national level against cybercrime.
Cybercrime is a criminal activity that involves computer and the Internet. It is an offense which is done with a purpose to affect any person or association or country to damage him financially or mentally.Some of the common cyber crimes are Email Spoofing, Online Transactions Frauds, Data theft, Hacking, Malware, hacking,virus-attack etc.
The Support Team is trained in matters of cyberlaw, digital security, and psychological support. It includes a qualified psychologist, digital security expert and trained lawyer, all of whom provide specialized assistance when needed
The objectives of the Cyber Helpline are to provide the public with a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit information to the Local Police concerning suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity and to develop effective alliances with law enforcement and industry partners. Information is analyzed and disseminated for investigative and intelligence purposes to law enforcement and for public awareness.
Indian Cyber Army offer varied and unique services. Our services are nominal and we also provide assistance to poor and needy persons. We also train our students with Cyber, Technical and Investigative skills from basic computer knowledge in small batches for a higher teacher to student ratio.
While fighting cybercrime is of the primary responsibility of law enforcement authorities, the role of the private sector should not be underestimated given the highly technical nature of this phenomenon and the necessity to develop a fast and effective response.
Cybercriminals are substantially motivated by profit and in particular financial profit. As for any legitimate business, they conduct cost/benefit analyses. As a result, their activities ignore legal boundaries between criminal law and civil law and therefore fall under the remit of law enforcement agencies as well as other public authorities, mainly those in charge of protecting consumers and personal data.
