Charles the Cyber Security Bot

As the pandemic rages in the streets, people from all age groups retort to their digital worlds to discover their safe communities. However, hidden among these groups are those who roam free to create chaos and to commit crimes.

Since 2019, according to The Guardian, there has been a 62% increase in ransomware globally. If that isn’t alarming enough, there have been 9.8 million records breached worldwide in 2021, according to itgovernance.co.uk.

The question that lingers in the air is, what to do after hearing such bone-shuddering news? Most people and especially youngsters who spend their time on social platforms are not even aware of these dangers. Sure, everyone has some measures set up. However, a proper understanding of cyber-terms lacks even today. And OH, what if you are a victim of a cybercrime? What should you do? Should you immediately turn to the authorities? Should you toss your device outside your window, dig an underground hole, and move there?

Hence, I came with a solution.

Say hello to Charles!

The Cyber Security bot. You can talk to him about all of your cybersecurity-related concerns. Quickly need someone to tell you how to put up your firewall? Need someone to explain what a Trojan virus is? Did your friend send you a fishy link, and do you need someone to fix your dilemma of checking it out or not? Feeling a bit upset today and don’t want any potentially sad content? Worry not! We have Charles now.

He will be a free web and mobile-based bot. (I intend to make an app for mobile and a website for the desktop).

Charles will help YOU learn more while keeping you just safe and sound.

Name the country/territory where you are a resident of.
