In­dia, Bri­tain for co­op­er­a­tion on cyber se­cu­rity


Top ex­perts from In­dia and Bri­tain re­cently dis­cussed cyber se­cu­rity and on­line se­cu­rity, a press­ing in­ter­na­tional is­sue de­mand­ing global co­op­er­a­tion. The dis­cus­sions were part of a four-day work­shop, which be­gan on March 24 and has been jointly or­gan­ised by Re­search Coun­cils UK (RCUK) and In­dia’s Depart­ment of Science and Tech­nol­ogy, the In­draprastha In­sti­tute of In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy-Delhi (IIIT-D), and Bri­tain’s Science and In­no­va­tion Net­work (SIN), a press re­lease said.

Cyber crime, pri­vacy and se­cu­rity in on­line so­cial me­dia, hu­man fac­tors and us­able se­cu­rity, risk iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and mon­i­tor­ing of sys­tems and net­works were among the top­ics dis­cussed at the work­shop. The world’s in­creased re­liance on elec­tronic sys­tems means that cyber at­tacks are likely to have sig­nif­i­cant dam­ag­ing con­se­quences, said the re­lease.

“We need a clearer un­der­stand­ing of our cur­rent and fu­ture vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties and the in­ad­e­qua­cies of cur­rent ap­proaches, along with in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions to tackle the im­por­tant chal­lenges,” said RCUK Deputy Di­rec­tor Helen Bai­ley.
