New cyber-security strategy to be released by Indian this year

Whether it is governance or data as a national resource, or building indigenous capabilities or cyber audit, to name a few, the new cyber-security strategy would serve as a guideline to tackle every aspect

A new cyber-security strategy is expected to be released by the government this year, Lt Gen Rajesh Pant, the National Cyber-security Co-ordinator at the Prime Minister’s Office said at an event.

The new cyber-security strategy would holistically cover the entire ecosystem of cyberspace in India, the Co-ordinator said at an event organised by the Public Affairs Forum of India (PAFI).

“The vision of this strategy is to ensure safe, secure, resilient, vibrant, and trusted cyber-space”, he said.

Whether it is governance or data as a national resource, or building indigenous capabilities or cyber audit, to name a few, the new cyber-security strategy would serve as a guideline to tackle every aspect.

There are about 80-odd deliverables coming out of this new strategy, he added.
The theme of the PAFI Dialogue was ‘Cyber-security in the New Normal’.

“Pandemic has shot up the cyber-crimes in India by 500 per cent and India is one of the top three attacked countries in the world as far as cyber-attacks are concerned”, Pant said.
There are emerging threats from the proliferation of new technologies like drones and IOT devices.

The government has taken a series of initiatives to ensure a safe, secure and trusted cyber-space.

“Cyber-crimes are increasing. Attribution is the difficult part and now (cyber-criminals) have started taking advantage of the dark web. Pandemic gave the perfect storm to the cyber-criminals”, he added.
