Are International Cyber Security Initiatives Enough?

While going through a good article on cyber security, I was thinking is the cyber security initiatives at national and international levels enough?

The article has contended that cyber security at the international level is not upto the mark and there is an urgent need of bringing international harmonisation in this regard.

Even there is no international cyber law treaty and different countries are governed by different cyber laws. This at times creates jurisdictional problems.

Even at the national and international cyber security events no consensus has reached for formulating an international cyber security convention.

As far India is concerned, we have no cyber security policy in India and even the cyber security laws in India are missing.

I believe it is high time for India and international community to consider cyber security seriously. The sooner we adopt sound cyber security in India the better it would be for the larger interest of India.
