The Indian government will be rolling out a new cybersecurity system this week, at a time when it turns out that India is among the top five countries whose data has been compromised by the US’ NSA surveillance system for years.The new architecture, which was cleared by the Cabinet last month, envisages an interconnected set of organizations in key departments like NTRO, defence and home ministries while CERT will remain the umbrella body to oversee cyber-protection. A newly-appointed cybersecurity coordinator will preside over this new inter-agency structure.
