India At #5 On List Of Cybercrime-Affected Countries

Posted on May 9, 2012. Filed under: India |

McAfee report blames Indians give low priority to internet privacy, contradicts Norton’s earlier survey.
India has been ranked as the 5th most affected country by cyber crimes, according to a joint study by McAfee and the Security and Defence Agenda (SDA) basedin Brussels. In a report titled Cyber Security: The Vexed Question of Global Rules , states that the country gives low importance to internet privacy, in general. The SDA hopes that these findings would offer useful recommendations and actions to improve the situation. Officials from the National Security Committee claimed at the Cyber Security Summit , which concluded recently in Bangalore, that the government is currently looking at capacity building, as a first step in drafting the national security policy that is being discussed at present.
The study further elaborates that India is well aware that its reputation as a country, which deals with foreign investors relying oncyber security, is adverselyaffected due to cyber crimes. It points to the lack of a single authority commanding effective controlon the internet, telecom, andpower sector. Communications and IT Minister of State, Sachin Pilot ‘s statement that 133 government websites were hacked in the first three months of this year furthersthe claim, about how grave the security situation on theinternet is in our country. In the wake of earlier reports about how thousands of Indian websites were hacked, we’re hard-pressedto agree. However, we are not so sure about the claims about internet privacy being given low priority, especiallywhen considering an earlier report stating just the opposite.
