National Security Advisor to Release Joint Working Group Report on Cyber Security

New Delhi: October 12,2012

India’s current economic, social & infrastructure development process is making greater use of ICT for bringing transformation. However, this dependence on ICT makes the country vulnerable to cyber attacks that can have serious implications for both, the nation and economy. This underlines the urgent need to address the risks emanating from operating in cyberspace.

Given that the private sector leads the development & adoption of ICT, a need was felt that the government and private sector collaborate and work together to overcome the challenges of cyber security.

Keeping this in view, the government had set up a Joint Working Group (JWG) under National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS) to work out the details of the roadmap for engagement with the private sector on cyber security. This JWG included representatives of both government and private sector. JWG had constituted Sub-Groups with representatives of government and private sector, to flesh out the details of such engagement.

Based on the inputs from these Sub-Groups, JWG finalized its recommendations. Sh Shivshankar Menon , National Security Advisor (NSA would be releasing the JWG Report on Engagement with Private Sector on Cyber Security, in New Delhi on Monday.

The JWG has identified the principles and objectives that would underpin the overall framework and roadmap for PPP on cyber security.

The JWG has recommended a “Roadmap” for PPP on Cyber Security which includes setting up of an institutional framework, capacity-building in the area of cyber security, development of cyber security standards and assurance mechanisms, augmentation of testing & certification facilities for IT products.

The government would work collaboratively with the private sector in successful implementation of the above JWG recommendations to strengthen the cyber security in the country
