Cyber Security In India Rejuvenated By Private Players

Cyber security issues in India are in discussion these days. Whether it is private players or government officials, cyber security is the theme of their discussions. Even cyber security firms and companies in India have become active. However, cyber security issues and challenges in India are still daunting enough to think seriously about Indian cyber security.

Indian government has launched many complex projects like CCTNS, National Intelligence Grid (Natgrid), National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) Of India, Central Monitoring System (CMS) Project Of India, etc that require techno legal expertise.

According to Praveen Dalal, managing partner of ICT law firm Perry4Law and CEO of Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) India cannot afford to adopt this “Lax Cyber Security Strategy” at this crucial period of time when Cyber Crimes and Cyber Attacks, Terrorism and Cyber Terrorism, Cyber Warfare, Cyber Espionage, Organised Crimes, Trans Border Crimes, White Collar Crimes, etc are plaguing India. We urgently need an Implementable Cyber Security Policy of India, opines Praveen Dalal. We have been working in these crucial directions for long and are further Strengthening our Cyber Security Initiatives, inform Praveen Dalal.

In fact, Perry4Law, Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) and Perry4Law Techno Legal ICT Training Centre (PTLITC) have already been managing exclusive cyber forensics research centre of India, cyber security research centre of India and cyber crimes investigation centre of India. These centers would help in modernisation of police force of India and fighting against cyber crimes, cyber attacks and other menaces of cyberspace. Further, cyber crimes investigation training in India by PTLB can also be helpful.

There is an urgent need to engage in public private partnership between Indian government and private cyber security institutions like PTLB and PTLITC. Further, assistance of Perry4Law can also be taken while formulating legal frameworks pertaining to cyber security in India. Let us hope Indian government would be serious this time and take assistance of Perry4Law, PTLB and PTLITC.
