Cyber Security Problems In India

Cyber security issues in India have raised many novel problems before various cyber security stakeholders of India. However, of all these stakeholders the responsibility and problems of India government are most onerous and troublesome.

Cyber security initiatives in India are still maturing and cyber security issues and problems in India are still unredressed. Techno legal experts of India have been warning about lack of cyber security in India for long. However, despite these wake up calls Indian government has been slow in reacting to cyber security requirements of India.

According to Praveen Dalal, managing partner of Perry4Law and CEO of Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB), Sophisticated Malware like Stuxnet, Duqu, Flame, etc have already proved that Critical Infrastructures around the World like Power Grids, Nuclear Facilities, Satellites, Defense Networks, Governmental Informatics Infrastructures, etc are vulnerable to diverse range of Cyber Attacks. The truth is that Cyber Attacks are affecting Indian Critical Infrastructure and we are not even aware of the same.

In these circumstances critical infrastructure protection in India is urgently needed. The cyber security in India has many challenges and problems that must be tackled on an urgent basis. There is an urgent need to involve techno legal cyber security institutions like PTLB to strengthen Indian cyber security.

In fact, PTLB has been managing cyber security problems, issues and challenges management in India in a techno legal manner. The exclusive techno legal cyber security research centre in India and national cyber security database of India (NCSDI) are managed by PTLB. Let us hope that Indian government would collaborate with PTLB to make cyber security in India more effective.
