Delhi:Cyber security is a great challenge and it needs a concerted effort by all the stakeholders to create a secure cyber space, Communications and IT Minister Kapil Sibal said at a global event on Internet in Baku, Ajerbaijan.
Greater cooperation and exchange of information among nations is needed to enhance cyber security and to address issues related to the management of the Internet, he said.
No nation can fight cyber crime or secure its cyberspace in isolation. Increased and focused cooperation among key players, governments, industry and international bodies, is essential to create a secure cyber space, he said.”
Sibal also proposed measures to achieve global interoperability between Information and Communication Technology platforms.
In the absence of global interoperability, critical data and information will not be available to all nations, when they require it most, he said.
Sibal said that an informed response to a cyber attack is highly critical in case of crucial services infrastructure such as telecom, energy, finance, power and e-Government.
He also stressed the need for devising a comprehensive Cyber Security Strategy, which harmonises national criminal laws, ensures cyber justice to users and providers of cyber services, and enables cyber courts with international jurisdictions and provides cyber justice in near real-time.
