Enabling CISOs to formulate policies in the domain of cyber security and build concrete cyber crisis management plans, the training also focussed on providing a holistic view of legal provisions
With an aim to build capacities of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and frontline IT officials, across all government departments, a cyber-training programme, “Cyber Surakshit Bharat” has been organised by the Ministry of Information Technology.
For ensuring adequate safety measures to combat the growing menace, and for organisations to defend their digital infrastructures and become future-ready in tackling cyber-attacks, the initiative has been conceptualised with the mission to spread awareness about cyber-crime and build capacities of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and frontline IT officials, across all government departments.
Operating on the principles of awareness, education and enablement, the 30th CISO Deep-Dive Training programme from August 22-26 was organised by the National e-Governance Division (NeGD), under its capacity-building scheme.
The intensive 5-day training programme, held at the Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA), New Delhi, was designed for designated CISOs from Central and State/UT Governments, subordinate agencies/PSUs, including public sector banks and insurance companies, technical wings of police and security forces, CTOs and members of technical/PMU teams; as well as officers responsible to observe security of IT systems in their respective organisation.
The aim of the Deep-Dive Training specifically was at educating and enabling CISOs to understand cyber-attacks comprehensively and thoroughly, get necessary exposure in latest technologies of safeguard, and translate the benefits of a resilient e-infrastructure to individual organisations and citizens at large.
Enabling CISOs to formulate policies in the domain of cyber security and build concrete cyber crisis management plans, the training also focussed on providing a holistic view of legal provisions.
The first-of-its-kind CISO training, launched in 2018, was a partnership between the government and industry consortium under Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model. To secure digital infrastructure and systems of their respective organisations, these programmes have capacitated 1,224 senior officials since June 2018.
