Kolkata's emerging IT hub is geared up for E-security barely days after a young woman working at a call centre was arrested for splurging Rs 200,000 with credit cards of her company's US clients. A group, Saltlec-Rajarhat Initiative, has been formed to deal with the issue.
According to Databazaar.com Managing Director SP Mukherjee there is a urgent need to take a three-pronged approach comprising minimum adherence to basic standard of security by auditing and certification (ISO etc.), thorough training of law enforcing agencies and federal-level countrywide legislation to deal with such crimes stringently.In this process Police would be given an orientation programme and made aware of the IT industry, how it works and the mindset of the young ambitious and cash-rich boys and girls working there. A foolproof and comprehensive security measure is our action plan, he added.
