NEW DELHI: Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Law & Justice and Electronics & Information Technology on Monday launched first National Informatics Centre Computer Emergency Response Team (NIC CERT) to prevent & predict cyber attacks on government utilities.
During the inauguration, Mr Prasad said that as part of its Digital India initiatives, the Government has introduced a lot of its services online. Although this has made services very accessible to the citizens, it has also exposed them to the threats and vulnerabilities which are an inherent part of cyberspace.
He mentioned that in the recent past there has been an exponential growth in cyber attacks leading to concerns of data theft which led to the Government drafting the Data protection Act.
