Due to increase in cyber crime, the Information and Technology Ministry is in major disarray. To control this, the Central Government is soon going to appoint a force of cyber professional, who will be able to stop hacking and keep a check on cyber crime in the government body.

The Information and Technology Ministry has decided to appoint 1.4 lakh high level cyber security experts in all the government departments. According to a senior official from the Information and Technology Ministry, we have constituted India Computer Emergency Response Team to deal with cyber attack.

The number of viral attack occurring in computer software has been reported to be 76 lakh. But the actual problem before the government for dealing with such type of attacks and hacking is the short fall of professionals, which government till date hires from outside.

According to a senior Information and Technology Ministry official, “The need of the hour is to safe guard our secret information as cyber invasion is one of the biggest problems that world is facing, India being a major target. We have to keep a force which is equipped with handling any type of cyber invasion or hacking.”
