  • Mumbai :  WNS (Holdings) Limited (NYSE: WNS), a leading provider of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services, today hosted the ‘Know Your BPO’ event for Police Officers at the WNS headquarters in Mumbai. This was part of the annual ‘Cyber Safe Thane 2010’ initiative being held from 18-20, Nov. 2010. The two-hour event had more than 30 senior officials from Thane Police and National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) participating in an interactive session comprising multiple presentations; a facility tour to understand the security measures and engagement with employees at all levels to identify the concerns and awareness on information security; and the safety measures therein.

    “Today, we are facing increased incidents of cyber theft and cyber frauds as a result of the rampant usage of the Internet,” said Dhananjay Kamalakar, IPS, Additional Commissioner of Police, Thane. “The ‘Cyber Safe Thane 2010’ is a three-day joint initiative by Thane Police, NASSCOM and DSCI, to build awareness and security measures about cyber safety amongst various sections of society including Thane Police officials, the Information Technology industry, academia and citizens of Thane at large. It has been carefully designed to help individuals understand and protect themselves from online threats while using the Internet,” he added.

    “As the world’s third largest Internet user, India is experiencing an increasing number of cyber threats and crimes, and the growing IT / ITES industry in India is highly sensitive to such a vulnerable environment,” said Keshav R. Murugesh, Group CEO, WNS Global Services. “WNS believes that it is our civic and social responsibility to educate and familiarize Police Officers with the practices of BPO operations to better equip the police in arresting cyber crime. After the very successful launch of the ‘Know Your BPO’ event in May 2010, for Mumbai Police, which included training more than 150 Mumbai Police Officers, WNS is planning to take the initiative to other parts of the country, beginning with Thane.”

    “We are delighted to associate with WNS to impart cyber security training to the Police Officials. The training follows a holistic approach towards new technologies, online fraud and cyber crime,” says cyber guru Vijay Mukhi.

    “It was a great learning experience at WNS on how a transaction made in our industry is protected by high-end security techniques,” said Rajiv Vaishnav, Vice President – NASSCOM.
