The beginning of the digital era has opened up a lot of opportunities nowadays. We can do mobile banking, online shopping, booking a hotel room, ordering some dinner, booking a cab, reading news, and books everything in just one click, but it has been rightly said that everything has a price, and the more you connect to digital assets the more is the chance of high risk towards your confidential and sensitive data. Now the question arises how the companies are securing this data and how they are protecting the data from this cyberattack? The answer is cyber security.

What is Cybersecurity?

Cyber security is the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect systems, networks, and programs from unauthorized access which means from small or big cyberattacks or cyber threats, therefore, protecting the organization and individuals.

There are various types of cyber-attacks that you can fall prey to, such as Phishing attacks, Malware attacks, Password attacks, DDoS attacks, MitM attacks, etc. Some of the cyber security tips which can help you to keep your data safe are, the use of anti-virus protection by installing anti-virus software such as Quick Heal,  Norton 360, etc. using network security control devices such as firewalls and IDS, use strong passwords, avoid unknown sites and don’t open any suspicious emails and also be careful on social platforms, don’t randomly share your information to any random site, do Online Banking and confidential work on “HTTPS” sites only. Be overly suspicious, although many things online are secure, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

CIA Triad

CIA stands for Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability. The CIA Triad is also referred to as the three pillars of security and most security policies of bigger organizations and even smaller companies are based on these three principles. Confidentiality means keeping your data private or secret. It ensures that only those who are authorized have access to specific information and those who are unauthorized are actively prevented from obtaining access.

Integrity is the assurance that the information is trustworthy and accurate. It involves maintaining data, consistency, and accuracy over its entire lifecycle. Overall integrity is about ensuring that data has not been tampered with and Availability ensures that authorized users should be able to access the data whenever they need to do so. It simply means that networks, systems, and applications are up and running. Therefore, the CIA Triad plays a major role in protecting, safeguarding, and securing our systems against growing cyber threats

Annual Day 2023

 After a long hiatus due to covid we finally got most activities on track. The Annual Day function is always a big deal for everyone at Abhinav. It has been a tradition my mother started that the Annual Day will be not a Teacher-managed event, but a Student Initiative. Since when I was a teenager, I was part of this and today 10 years after she passed, I still strive to make it work as she would have. After some hesitation, we began working in early January. I wanted to use an outside choreographer just so that teachers will not be burdened. (They are already struggling with post-covid learning difficulties) But then, an outside guy could never do justice to the Abhinav style of doing things. We always keep in mind that the cultural program should be enjoyable to everyone in the audience and at the same time should display as many of the diverse talents that our students have, as possible.  It was a great relief that my G3 students came to the rescue. Almost all of std 9 and many of st

Are Self-Driving Cars Taking Over Humans?

- Arya Dharmadhikari(Std X, Abhinav Vidyalay) The 21st century has played an important role in the advancement of technologies. This development has even revolutionized the Automobile industry. We have developed from fuel-efficient vehicles to Hybrids and EVs and now we are enhancing self-driving vehicles. Tesla, Waymo, Volvo, GM, BMW, Mercedes are among the few companies that have started testing self-driving cars. The leading among them is Waymo, which has developed level 4 autonomy which we will discuss in the next section. So before reaching levels of autonomy we should understand what self-driving cars are and why we require them. What is a self-driving car? A self-driving car (also called an autonomous vehicle) is a car that is competent in driving itself without any human intervention. The car has sensors, cameras, lasers, radars, GPS, LIDAR through which the Artificial Intelligence senses the surrounding environment, this helps the car to navigate on its path and to detect sig

Dark Matter

  ~Anvi Patil(X th A Abhinav Vidyalay) In the universe, there is about 25% of dark matter and 70% of dark energy but only 5% of it is visible. What is Dark Matter? It is a non-luminous material, which holds two galaxies. This cannot be called a black hole because it does not bend light. Then the question arrives, as it is non-luminous, how did we detect it? As it is not visible, scientists have found indirect methods to find more about it. One such method is by using the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope . Gamma rays are released when two particles of dark matter collide, Fermi telescope can be used to detect this collision. This topic was discovered by Fritz Zwicky in the 1930s, he discovered that galaxies were rotating at a faster rate than usual. A dark region seen in the foreground of a star field. This dark region could be a dark cloud of gases like hydrogen, left over from the formation of our galaxy Dark matter is called ‘dark’ not because it is ‘black’ but because it does not
