Telenor and Grameenphone, with firm regard for cyber-safety, believe that the users’ responsible online behaviour and activities can help build a safer internet, privacy, and assets from cyber attackers.

 People remain in the primary line of defence to prevent, detect, and protect against security attacks. With this year’s theme – “We are Security – Security is Everyone’s Responsibility”, Grameenphone has opted to create discussions on real-life examples and its causes on professional life for the employees, partners and stakeholders.

Yasir Azman, CEO of Grameenphone, said “With the increased reliance on the internet, the risk of cyber safety is becoming more and more pertinent, not only during this pandemic, always. We are working towards creating a world ensuring a Safety Net for the citizen to best utilize the potential of connectivity. At Grameenphone, we are committed to making our customers aware to ensure a safer internet for all.”
