With an aim to protect information and build capabilities to prevent cyber attacks, the government today released the National Cyber Security Policy 2013 to safeguard both physical and business assets of the country.
“…policy is a framework document and it gives you a broad outline of what our vision is…the real task or the challenge is the operationalisation of this policy,” Minister of Communications and IT Kapil Sibal said while releasing the policy here.
Sibal said the critical infrastructure such as air defence system, power infrastructure, nuclear plants, telecommunications system have to be protected otherwise it may create economic instability.
He added it will not be able to point out to a particular country to say the source of the attack because it will difficult in the cyberspace to figure it out.
“In the ultimate analysis, we have to develop global standards because there is no way that we can have a policy within the context of India which is not connected with the rest of the world because information knows no territorial boundaries,” Sibal added.
