Digital India: Reaction to Union Budget 2022

Forward looking and catering to an aspirational Digital India, the budget once again lays its emphasis on technology with the launch of Digital Currency using block-chain

Spokesperson: Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India and SAARC, Fortinet.

“In this budget the Government has made a strong economic statement with its focus on public investments to spur growth. Forward looking and catering to an aspirational Digital India, the budget once again lays its emphasis on technology with the launch of Digital Currency using block-chain, Digital University for education in different Indian languages, roll out of 5G and boost to Start-ups.

Climate action is among the top 4 priorities for the Government. Climate change continues to pose a significant threat, and all business and public organizations across the country must do their part to address it.

Skilling programs and partnerships with industry will be re-oriented to promote continuous skilling avenues, sustainability, and employability. The launch of Desh-Stack e-portal will provide the ecosystem for skilling and livelihood. Fortinet has been dedicated to closing the cyber-security skills gap by making all its NSE self-paced training courses free for everyone. We will further build on this commitment with a pledge to train 1 million people across the globe in the next 5 years.

Essential services, Digital currency and the sensitivity of the information the government holds all calls for a shared responsibility in protecting valuable data and digital assets. Smart planning, doing the cyber-security basics and leveraging the increasing convergence of networking and security are keys to ensuring that all services can operate efficiently and securely”, Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC, Fortinet.
