Karnataka Government announces new cybersecurity policy to check risks

Karnataka Government announces new cybersecurity policy to check risks

The Karnataka government is framing a new cybersecurity policy to minimize risks in digital services and transactions. The tech-savvy state government is conducting month-long programs related to cybersecurity awareness in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the Karnataka Innovation & Technology Society. Robust cybersecurity has become imperative due to the rapid adoption of IT (information technology) solutions to deliver public services digitally.

"Because of the increasing use of digital mode for transactions, we are framing a new cybersecurity policy to reduce risks in delivering public services and transactions," Deputy Chief Minister C.N. Ashwath Narayan said when inaugurating 'October cybersecurity awareness' month program at the state secretariat.

As per the FBI report, India ranked third among the top 20 countries in cyber-crimes. Defacement of websites and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are malicious attempts to disrupt regular traffic of a targeted server, service, or network and have become the latest threats in cyberspace. In order to reduce these cyber-attacks, the government of Karnataka has come up with such an idea. This will help the government to monitor the malicious attacks thoroughly and to keep an eye on data braches.
