PTLB Strengthened Cyber Security Of India

Cyber security of India is the popular discussion these days. This is a good sign for the cyber security of India. However, we have already done enough talks and it is the actual implementation of cyber security initiatives that is required at this stage.

Serious cyber threats have been endangering the critical infrastructures of India and there is an urgent need to ensure critical infrastructure protection in India. For instance, cyber terrorism, cyber warfare, cyber espionage, etc are some areas where we need to develop both offensive and defensive cyber security capabilities in India. Further, cyber security skills development in India is also required.

While Indian government has always ignored cyber security of India yet some private players have been playing a pro active role in this regard. To cite an example, Perry4Law, Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) and Perry4Law Techno Legal ICT Training Centre (PTLITC) have launched exclusive techno legal cyber forensics research centre of India, cyber security research centre of India and cyber crimes investigation centre of India for long.

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. In short, cyber security in India has been rejuvenated by private players that further needs governmental support.

The starting point can be formulation of an effective cyber security policy of India that must be actually implemented at grass root levels. No matter howsoever good the intentions and announcements may be they are useless if they are not implemented in a timely and effective manner. India government must take help of techno legal institutions like PTLB and PTLITC to effectively manage its cyber security related tasks.
