Culture and Covid and Cyber ​​Security

JIS Virtual Education Summit 2020 (DAY 2)

News Desk, News Nation 360: Coronavirus outbreaks have closed all cinema halls for the past four months. Although the shooting of the teleserials has just started, there is a lot of uncertainty about the shooting of the movie. Producers are still unaware that if the film is made, it will be shown on the new technology OTT platform or the release of the film on multiplexes and single screens is far from over. However, the leaders of the entertainment world are seeing the light of hope in this. On the second day of the first consecutive three-day Virtual Education Summit in East India organized by JIS Group, these topics were raised in the discussion titled "Culture and Covid" by Swarnakamal winning director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, popular musician and director Anindya Chatterjee and veteran actor Barun Chander. Renowned actor Biplob Dasgupta was in charge of the session. Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, director of Endless, Resonance or Pink, told they have to deal with this new normal situation. Today they have a lot more time to think about themselves, to communicate with more people. With the help of digital technology, they can do a lot of things they never thought possible before. Even movie releases are happening on OTT platforms.  According to Anindya Chatterjee, Chandrabindu, Corona has had a huge impact on the music world. When they program live, they sing according to the mood of the audience. That is not possible digitally. But they are already performing in California on August 15 in Kolkata. Actor Varun Chanda thinks that corona has an effect on stage shows like theatre or Jatra. But it may be possible to digitalize the theatre in the near future. The first session of the second day of the Virtual Summit was a discussion on "Covid and Cyber ​​Security". Cybersecurity has been severely hampered by the outbreak of coronavirus. News of online bank fraud always comes. Ethical hacker Sandeep Sengupta, eminent lawyer Tamalkanti Mukherjee and Nasscom's East India chief Nirupam Chowdhury were present at the cybersecurity session. Cybercrime has increased by more than 200% during this period of lockdown alone. Sandeep Sengupta gave some suggestions to the audience on how to protect himself from this rising cybercrime. On behalf of NASSCOM, Nirupam Chowdhury and Tamal babu explained that the information technology companies are in constant discussion with them on the legal issue of cybercrime.
