Techno-Legal Cyber Security Research and Development Center Of India

V K Singh

Cyber security is essential for India. However, not much has been done in India to strengthen this crucial requirement in India. As a result cyber security in India is still in a state of flux.

The cyber security problems of India are multifold. There are almost no cyber security research institutions in India to suggest robust cyber security implementations. Cyber Security Research and Training Center of India (CSRTCI) is the exclusive research, education and training institution and centre in India regarding cyber security.

It has a repository of open source software essential for building robust and resilient cyber security infrastructure in India, says its founder and coordinator Praveen Dalal. The Center is also unique in the sense that it is the Exclusive Techno-Legal Cyber Security Center of the World. It provides domain specific and highly specialised technical and legal solutions and measures for improving cyber security of various nations and organisations, says Dalal.

The center is just one of the few techno-legal initiatives by Perry4Law Techno-Legal Base (PTLB) that has recently emerged as a premier techno-legal institute of the World. Indian cyber security would be strengthened and helped a lot by this center in the near future.
