India Discusses Cyber 9/11 Prevention

 

“So far there has been no Cyber 9/11 in India as most of our networking systems are not interconnected. But things are changing now. Soon we will be a nation of billions of mobile phones, and it is important that we have a security system in place as well as sensitise people about it. Banking, IT and Service sectors are already facing the threat of cyber thefts which are more serious than any Cyber 9/11,” former National Security Adviser Shivshankar Menon said recently.

At “Cyber 360 – a Synergia Conclave”, Mr Menon stressed the importance of increasing cooperation between the government and industry to achieve cyber security. “In 2013, a rumour on the internet forced thousands of people from Bengaluru to flee to their homes in Northeastern states. The campaign, run on the Internet, had created a fear among the Northeast people that they would be attacked. It’s important that our country has a state-of-the-art cyber defence system. The Nasscom is now setting up a Task Force which is expected to strengthen the country’s security on the web,” Mr Menon said.
 
The conference aims to bring together strategic stakeholders on a single platform to obtain a 360-degree perspective on cyber security. Earlier, Deputy National Security Adviser Dr Arvind Gupta said that the role of the government in Internet policy-making is vital, given the massive rise of users. 

“We need a suitable network and architecture, considering that security architecture is vital for the country to protect its assets. We are setting up a number of institutions across the country to address the issue. Also, keeping in mind the fear of cyber attacks and cyber warfare, it has become paramount to set up an adequate network. Internet governance is also an important facet. When you have three billion people across the world having access to the internet, government’s intervention is required,” he said.

Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt said that Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming a hot issue every passing year. “In the next five years, 90% of the world would have access to internet through mobiles. We have to consider that there is a growing population and that Internet is growing alongside. It is important to have a partnership between the society and government,” he said.
