TT Correspondent |  |  03 Jul 2013

With an aim to create secure computing environment and enabling adequate trust and confidence in electronic transactions, India has announced its national cyber security policy. This will also guide stakeholders’ actions for protection of cyber space.
 
The policy document outlines a road-map to create a framework for comprehensive, collaborative and collective response to deal with the issue of cyber security at all levels within the country.
 
Kapil Sibal, Union Minister for Communications and IT while releasing the National Cyber Security Policy, said that it should be seen as about protecting of information, such as personal information, financial/banking information, sovereign data etc.
 
He said that information empowers, and in order to empower people with information, we need to secure the information/data. He also flagged the need to distinguish between data which can freely flow and data which needs to be protected.
 
The policy which articulates government’s concerns, understanding, priorities for action as well as efforts provides confidence and reasonable assurance to all stakeholders in the country (Government, business, industry and general public) and global community, about the safety, resiliency and security of cyber space.
