Cyberspace-related risks have increased massively due to the absence of awareness and self-resistance among Internet users to safeguard themselves. One of the vital measures to cultivate knowledge and understanding is the holistic intervention of cyber safety and security programs. Creating awareness through cyber safety and security initiatives is such a great way to address the issue in detail. It ultimately strengthens the discourse about online safety. There are a large number of awareness initiatives available worldwide that meet the requirements of the online community. This paper tries to highlight such initiatives in India to promote awareness about cyber safety and security.
