For this purpose, an expert committee was set up to give recommendations and prepare a roadmap to tackle the pressing issue.
The committee reportedly submitted its report namely ‘Roadmap for Effectively Tackling Cyber Crimes in the Country’ to Home Minister Rajnath Singh. The Home Minister asked all concerned officials for immediate implementation of the report.
Some of the key recommendations of the committee:
* Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (ICCCC) to be set up at the national level having branches in all states.
* The Centre will have linkages with CCTNS and NATGRID for information related to various kinds of crime and criminals.
* One of the priorities of ICCCC will be to check hacking of Indian government official communication network by international gangs.
* The committee also suggested to ensure one dedicated secure gateway for all government communication in order to reduce dependence on foreign servers.
