A national cyber security policy will be introduced in the first quarter of next year to curb cyber attacks in the country.
Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo said the policy was aimed at curbbing cyber attacks from within and outside the country and would include protection of personal information of internet users.
“The policy is being drafted by the ministry and we expect it to be announced in March next year. It will support our cybersecurity industry growth which include enhanced cybersecurity incident response and digital forensics with data analytic capabilities,” he said.
Gobind was speaking to reporters after opening the National Cyber Security Strategy Development seminar here today.
The ministry, he said, was also in talks with several other ministries to amend or introduce new laws relating to cybercrime and cyberbullying.
