Cyber Security In India Rejuvenated By PTLB

Cyber security issues in India have always vexed India for long. Cyber security has also been ignored in India for long and it is only now that some interest in cyber security field has been shown in India by the Indian government.

However, there are some private players who have been instrumental in spreading awareness about cyber security related aspects in India. The most prominent among these cyber security players are Perry4Law and Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB).

Perry4Law and PTLB have single handily managed to provide robust cyber security policy framework and cyber security awareness among various stakeholders. In fact, many good and exclusive techno legal initiatives have been launched by Perry4Law and PTLB in the past five years.

Now dedicated platforms have been opened by Perry4Law and PTLB to further rejuvenate cyber security in India. Some of the initiatives of Perry4Law and PTLB include cyber security research centre of India by PTLB, virtual e-learning campus in India by PTLB, lifelong techno legal education in India by Perry4Law, cyber security software repository of India by PTLB, etc.

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, opines Praveen Dalal.

There cannot be a second opinion about these suggestions. We are already facing issues like cyber warfare against India, critical infrastructure protection in India, cyber terrorism against India, cyber espionage against India, etc. These issues need urgent attention of Indian government and various cyber security stakeholders of India.

The initiatives and efforts of PTLB in the direction of strengthening of cyber security in India are really praiseworthy. We look forward for more initiatives from Perry4Law and PTLB in the future.
