In order to better arm itself in the wake of rising threat of cyber crime, the government on Tuesday announced the National Cyber Security Policy 2013.
The policy, which was approved in May this year recognises the need to put in place a comprehensive action plan to address the issue from sides.
The policy has proposed to set up different bodies to deal with various levels of threat in the country along with a national nodal agency to cordinate all matters related to cyber security in the country.
While a body called the National Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Centre (NCIIPC) will act as a 24*7 centre to ward off cyber security threats in strategic areas such as aircontrol, nuclear, space etc and will be under the NTRO, the existing agency CERT will handle all public and private infrastructure. Union Minister of Communications and IT Kapil Sibal said that India is one of the few countries to have a cyber policy in place.
