India Is A Sitting Duck Says NTRO

The government of India (GOI) is least bothered about cyber security in India and critical infrastructure protection in India. According to Praveen Dalal, the leading techno-legal expert of India, we must pay more attention towards securing India’s cyberspace not only from internal but also external threats. Now even NTRO has admitted that India needs to have a dedicate cyber security organisation.

There is nothing to stop China, unless India develops its own tools for cyber warfare, National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), the agency principally involved with investigating the depth of the damage caused by Chinese hackers, has warned. The Chinese hacking force uses malware, spyware, key loggers, trojans, bots and malicious code generators to break into Indian computers, copy documents, ex-filtrate sensitive material and bug classified correspondence. Without a dedicated Indian cyber-security organisation, this country will remain a sitting duck.
