Instigating the industry to focus on emerging trends & strategies for addressing cyber security issues, Modi urged to work on pathbreaking ideas like ‘cloud godowns’ and ‘cloud lockers’, which can be used by banks and others to safely keep data without the fear of it being compromised.
Referring to the Gold Bond scheme announced in the Union Budget 2015 that gives people an option to own precious metal without physically buying it, he said the instruments can be kept safely in ‘Cloud Lockers’.
“The whole world is concerned. Since I have become the Prime Minister, I have met around 50 world and political leaders and out of that, almost 25-30 have said cyber security is a concern,” Modi said.
“I look forward to path breaking ideas from young talent across the country to build innovative technology solutions.”
Moreover, the Prime Minister also emphasised on the importance of e-governance. He urged the Indian IT sector to innovate and provide mobile applications to deliver citizen-centric services and mobile governance.
Speaking of the ambitious Digital India initiative, Modi said that the government is building IT infrastructure, and would adopt innovations. “Technology, as an enabler, also plays an important role in governance as it brings in transparency.”
