The virtual world can sometimes prove to be a trap for young people, often targeted by malicious elements with nefarious designs. There is a need to be aware of such elements and blackmailers.

The Lahore YMCA, keeping up with the tradition of staying abreast of the latest developments, held a training workshop for young people to equip them with skills regarding cyber security. The workshop called 'Cyber Friday' was held at the YMCA Hall on Friday, attracting a large number of students from different institutions. The one-day workshop was also attended by leaders in different fields.

The workshop trained the participants on how to avoid being exploited on social media and explained to them tools for ensuring cyber security. The workshop practically trained the participants on how to safeguard themselves from issues related to cyber security.

Director, Lahore YMCA Haroon Rehmat was the chief guest on the occasion, and he, along with Emanuel Sarfraz, the General Secretary of YMCA gave certificates to the participants at the conclusion of the workshop. "YMCA will continue to hold such programs for the welfare of communities, and hopefully people benefiting from them will be able to safeguard themselves in challenging times," Rehmat said.
