Bengaluru Has Now Become the Cybercrime Capital of India

Bengaluru Has Now Become the Cybercrime Capital of India

Bengaluru is officially registered as the hub for cybersecurity. It is because the department saw many cases that counted up to 5,035 FIRs in 2018. Compared to other cities it topped the chart and as per the Maharashtra Assembly 2,945 cases were registered in the state till September 2018. Most of these cases came from Mumbai. Other states had encountered very few cases and were just double digits in the count.  In the past, Bangalore saw 762 cases which are quite less to 5,035 FIRs. This has led to more awareness and better precaution methods being implemented in order to avoid such cybercrimes. Remember back in 2001 Bengaluru had its own exclusive cybercrime police station.

“In the other metros, such a step was not even considered. The station also had all the powers of other stations and a wide jurisdiction. Secondly, Bengaluru is an IT hub and the number of IT companies here is very high, even by global standards. Therefore, people with awareness on filing complaints against cybercrimes are also high in number. In short, there are a greater number of cyber literates in Bengaluru,” says Former DG and IGP of Karnataka ST Ramesh. Recently SBI also had the same problem where information about customers’ transaction was leaked due to lack of cybersecurity. Certainly many feel that this problem should be solved soon before it gets out of hand.
