Most of the smartphone users today are ignorant about their security data and hence become the victim of online fraud, observed experts at an awareness programme in cyber crimes organised at SJCE campus here on Tuesday.It is necessary for those who do online banking through their phones to know the security measures, said KR Kantharaju, DySP, Mysuru Cyber Crime Cell. Everyday five to eight cyber crime cases were being booked in Mysuru. It is not easy to nab the culprit as, in most cases, they are more updated on technologies. If the users protect their phone with important security features, it would come handy while dealing with case, he observed. Although, the Karnataka Cyber Crime has been awarded the best in the country, there are lot of limitations. Besides, laws are not in favour to arrest the culprits, especially when it involves two nations, he added.The programme was jointly organised by CII Mysuru in association with SJCE-STEP
