Cyber Security: Security in the Age of Digital India

Kulbir Singh


When we talk to the visiting heads of the technology giants about the government’s ambitious Digital India and Smart Cities initiatives, usually the focus is around scale of the project, capacity to do it and eventually the conversation will move to the subject of cyber security. Nowadays security breaches are a regular feature. While both Smart Cities and Digital India will create new economic and social opportunities, they will also be creating an increasingly large attack surface for criminals to exploit as an initial foothold or vector into otherwise well-protected IT environments. The government initiative that seeks to transform the country into a connected economy can be successful only when security of the connected devices is assured. So, this lecture is about why there is a need for cyber security in the age of digitization. This research paper is simply based on secondary data collected through books, magazines, research papers etc.. Internet is also made use of here to gather the information and to finding the various reports for the related information of the study.
