India faces with the increasing threats of Cyber Spying

The cyber spying is motivated by patriotic feelings resulting in cyber assaults on businesses and other governmental computer systems.

According to Praveen Dalal, leading techno legal expert of India and founder of cyber security research centre of India (CSRCI), cyber spying may be committed by an insider or an outsider with the help of Internet and computer. The problem is that cyber spying is inexpensive and relatively easy to commit and it is also difficult to prove with absolute certainty.

Dalal said that having an effective cyber security mechanism at place can help in prevention of majority of cyber espionage issues, but there is no full proof method of preventing cyber spying because a cracker can penetrate and exploit the intended target with adequate resources and time.

Cyber Security in India has not received much attention of Indian government and there is not even a Cyber Security Policy of India. In fact India is vulnerable to cyber espionage, cyber crimes, cyber terrorism and many similar cyber threats.

This means that India is not serious at all regarding digital issues and others are taking advantage of this political will vacuum.
