Cybersecurity wings under the government of India

Cybersecurity in India affects both the public and the private sector and spans a broad range of issues related to  Indian national security, whether through terrorism, crime or state and industrial espionage.

E-crime, or cybercrime, whether relating to theft, hacking or denial of service to vital systems, has become a reality of life. The risk of industrial cyber espionage, in which one company makes active attacks on another, through cyberspace, to acquire high-value information is also a fact.

Cyber terrorism presents challenges for the future no only for India but for the world. CERT is prepared for terrorist attacks through the internet of Indian key military or space installations or disables key information systems.
