India is preparing to roll out a new cyber-security system, amid reports it was among the top five countries compromised by US surveillance.

The National Cyber Coordination Centre’s primary job is to carry out a real-time assessment of cyber security threats and provide actionable reports.

According to data compiled by the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team, more than 1,000 government websites, storing critical and sensitive data concerning national security, have been hacked by cyber criminals in the last three years.

In early March, suspected Chinese hackers breached the computers of India’s top military organization, the Defence Research and Development Organisation, one of the biggest security breaches in the country’s history.
