Cyber Security In India Is Needed-Censored By Google

The censorship and manipulation of search results by Google is at its peak. Rather, Google censorship is at its worst. Google is engaging in illegal blogs and news censorship for long.

As per the blog that keeps a regular watch upon these activities of Google, the new article titled “Cyber security in India is needed” has been censored by Google. Recently, Google once again demoted and censored many blogs in India. The chief among them are Cyber Forensics in India, Cyber Security in India, E-Discovery Services In India, E-Commerce Laws And Regulations In India, Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB), Corporate Laws In India, Techno Legal Online Dispute Resolution Services, LPO and KPO in India, etc.

For some strange reasons blogs and news pertaining to cyber security and cyber forensics have been openly censored by Google. The reason for the same is still unknown but Google is definitely aware of what is happening in its house.

This episode also gives rise to a question-is Google manipulating and abusing its dominant position and is engaging in unfair trade practices? Perhaps the competition commission of India and federal trade commission of US must initiate an investigation into this practice of Google.

The original article has been reposted below so that our readers and viewers may read it in an unrestricted manner.

Cyber security in India is one issue that has not received much attention at the top level. The cyber security reflections in India are not very encouraging and promising. We are facing issues like cyber warfare against India and its defenses, critical infrastructure protection in India, cyber terrorism against India and its defences and solutions, cyber espionage against India and its challenges, solutions and defences, etc. These issues need urgent attention of Indian government.

The recent power blackout in many parts of India also brought cyber security for power energy and utilities in India under consideration. The power grids cyber security in India and its challenges were recognised and appreciated by India. However, we have to stress upon defending our power and critical infrastructures keeping in mind the cyber security issues and challenges in India.

According to Praveen Dalal, managing partner of Perry4Law and CEO of PTLB, there are numerous cyber security challenges in India that are still unredressed. He believes that India's cyber security challenges are unique to Indian conditions and they require local treatment and solutions. Cyber security issues in India require a dedicated effort on the part of Indian stakeholders. Even the cyber security firms, companies and consultants in India must be pro active, opines Praveen Dalal.  

Equal stress must also be given to cyber security skills and capabilities development in India. More online cyber security courses in India must be developed on the lines suggested by PTLB.

In fact, PTLB e-learning platform is the exclusive techno legal online education, training and skills development initiative of India. It is helping in cyber security skills development in India and world wide. Let us hope that Indian government would seek more active and direct collaboration with techno legal leaders like Perry4Law and PTLB to strengthen cyber security of India.
