Cyber Surakshit Bharat (CISO)
With increasing digitization and use of Internet technologies in governance and in every sphere of our life, the possibility of cyber crime has also increased. To address the emerging challenges of cyber security, Ministry of Electronics & IT (MeitY) is implementing a broader outreach programme ‘Cyber Surakshit Bharat’ in collaboration with leading IT Industry consortium and related government organizations. The programme educates and enables Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and broader IT community to address and mitigate the emerging challenges and create awareness among end users. Launched on January 19, 2018, it is the-first-of-its-kind of partnership between the Government and industry consortium under Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
The industry consortium consists of Microsoft, E&Y, IBM, Intel, Palo Alto Networks, Cisco, Samsung, F5, Lucideus Technologies and Dbaux. MeitY organizations, such as, NIC, CERT-In, STQC and CDAC are knowledge partner in this programme. NeGD, an arm of Ministry of Electronics and IT, is supporting in designing and delivery of this training programme.
