Five-year plan in the works to revamp cyber security
“In its bid to meet the growing challenge of ever-increasing threat to the virtual world, the government has set in motion a five-year project to revamp the cyber security apparatus of critical sectors in the country. India has suffered 13,000 cyber incidents in the past one year alone.
The National Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Centre (NCIIPC), the nodal agency to co-ordinate cyber security operations for critical infrastructures across the country, has been entrusted with the responsibility. NCIIPC has prepared a five-year plan to revamp and integrate the cyber security apparatus of all critical infrastructures such as power, transportation, water, telecommunication and defence. “
