There are many crucial cyber security updates for the period in question. These includes the analysis of the National Cyber Security Policy of India 2013 (NCSP 2013) formulated by the Indian government. However, the NCSP 2013 has been criticised for many reasons including lack of privacy protection and absence of integration with the National Security Policy of India.
The data protection laws in India and privacy rights in India (Pdf) are still in a state of abysmal. The privacyrights in India in the information age (Pdf) are still ignored by Indian government. Indian government has started many e-surveillance oriented projects without any legal framework and an e-surveillance policy of India (PDF) must be urgently formulated by Indian government.
India is still grappling with the issues like cyber warfare, cyber espionage and cyber terrorism, etc. For instance, recently Huawei was accused of breaching national security of India by hacking base station controller in AP. Thus, the critical infrastructure protection in India and its problems, challenges and solutions (Pdf) are still to be looked into with great priority.
A dedicated cyber warfare policy of India (Pdf) must be formulated as soon as possible. All these issues have been meticulously covered by the cyber security trends and developments in India 2013 (PDF) released by Perry4Law and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB).
Cyber security experts in India believe that cyber security must be an international issue (Pdf) and in order to ensure the same an international cyber security treaty is required (Pdf).
The year 2013 was a tough one for the India cyber security and the year 2014 would bring its own share of problems for Indian cyberspace. Let us hope that Indian government would be well equipped to deal with the same.
