National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) is taking another initiative towards creating more awareness on Cyber crimes. Nasscom is talking with the Maharashtra director of prosecution to train 40 prosecutors every month.
NASSCOM is also planning to introduce an advanced training programme, which covers cyber forensic tools and methodologies through its cyber labs. These cyber labs can register and investigate cyber crimes with the help of police and also provide training to police officers, prosecutors, military, bank officials and others on cyber crimes. Currently, Nasscom has four cyber labs which are located in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Chandigarh. Later on, the NASSCOM will open cyber labs at four locations including one each in National Capital Region, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata. The upcoming cyber labs will have a full time project manager from police, two instructors and part-time volunteers from the student community. The training will include Internet browsing, browsing, email and online transactions among others and education on what constitutes cyber crime.
