[ISN] Contribute For Cyber Security Policy Of India
National security and cyber security in India is passing through a bad
phase. The recent terrorist attacks have unambiguously proved the
deficiencies and weaknesses of Indian defence mechanisms. India failed
to cope up with both traditional terrorism as well as contemporary
technology driven cyber terrorism. The technology has further
complicated the situation because we have a weak cyber law in India in
the form of Information Technology Act, 2000 (IT Act, 2000). A weak
cyber law accompanied with absence of legal framework for terrorism is
coming heavily upon India. Is it that difficult for the government of
India to appreciate this bitter truth and act accordingly?
India does not have technical resources and expertise as well as legal
framework to tackle terrorism and cyber terrorism. The citizens of India
must come together in this hard time and provide their valuable
suggestions and inputs to the government of India.
One such novel and timely action has already been undertaken. Letters
regarding âConstitutionalityâ of the proposed Information Technology
(Amendment) Bill, 2006 and National Security Policy of India have been
sent by Mr. Praveen Dalal, Managing Partner of Perry4Law, to the Prime
Minister of India (Dr. Manmohan Singh), President of India, Parliament
Members (Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha), Government of India (GOI),
Department of Information Technology (DIT), Department of Science and
Technology (DST), CERT-IN, etc.
