Hyderabad To Be The First Indian City To Be Cyber Safe


Cyber-crime is on a steep rise, and almost every other citizen of this nation is worried and cautious to surf online. But there’s one city in India that could surf hassle free without any fear, and that’s the city of pearls, Hyderabad.

Minster for IT and Panchayat Raj for the state of Telangana, Mr. K.T Rama Rao on Tuesday said, that the city of Hyderabad would be made cybercrime free, as the state government is partnering with top industry experts that include few of the biggest names like Nasscom and DSCI, that will help making its capital – Hyderabad – a “cyber-safe destination”.

“Today cyber security is reality and the new generation exists in a paradigm where they refuse to live in an unconnected world. Mobile governance will be a reality soon and so will be Internet of Things (IoT). The current realm places new challenges on the government,” the minister said.

K.T. Rama Rao was speaking at the first edition of the Annual Cyber Security Conclave 2015 that was held in Hyderabad.

“Telangana state has partnered with CR Rao institute to train its police in cyber-security. Telangana state will now partner with Nasscom and Data Security Council of India (DSCI), as well to make Hyderabad a cyber-safe destination,” Rao was quoted as saying in a release.

“The new world war would be fought with keyboards and we are preparing cyber warriors to combat this,” the minister said.

The conclave was aimed to bring in one of the best cyber security practices in the country by collaborating with industry experts across India and creating a crime free online platform.
