At the onset, I would like to make it clear that we have to first learn to stress upon quality in this country. Unless we have quality, we can’t have security. It may be harsh to say, but the fact of the matter is that our country glorifies ‘jugaad’ system, rather than glorifying quality. My crisp message is that we should focus on quality first or otherwise we should stop talking about security. Let me give an example. All our banks are computerized. Have we ever thought that who actually stores the passwords of the servers? These are saved with the vendors, not with the bank managers. Yes, this is the reality. Still we talk about security in information technology system. My opinion is that we should first focus on enforcing quality everywhere. Our system must have SOPs for passwords and these should be enforced strictly.
