GP observes ‘Telenor Security Day’

Telenor Group, the parent company of Grameenphone, observed ‘Telenor Security Day’ on Thursday, across all operating markets to raise awareness among customers and employees.

Grameenphone believes that our responsible online behavior and activities can help build a #DigitalDefense to protect our and our customers’ valuable data, privacy, and assets from cyber attackers, said a press release.

 With the upheaval of the C19 pandemic, a remarkable amount of online traffic has been surging. While e-commerce, social media usage, entertainment, DFS/MFS, and other e-platforms are booming simultaneously, online attackers are becoming more active than ever before using ‘Social Engineering’ and other fraudulent tricks.

Through Social Engineering attacks, an individual’s data can be stolen, misused, mishandled, and as a result, it can cause identity theft, financial fraud, and other occurrences.

Rade Kovačević, Chief Technology Officer, Grameenphone, said, “We are committed to safeguarding our network and customers’ online presence through continuous innovations and modernization.

To create awareness, Grameenphone has also relaunched the online etiquette awareness drive’ Internet er Duniya’e Jante Hobe, Kothay Apnar Thamte Hobe’.

In partnership with UNICEF and Telenor, GP has been conducting outreach programs nationwide to create awareness of a safer internet environment for children and sensitize parents, guardians, and teachers.
