Cyber security, data privacy critical for growth of Digital India

New Delhi : As India continues to leapfrog into the digital revolution and brace the dream of Digital India that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has for the nation, it is also time to take into cognisance the threats that are surrounding us.

Data is being considered as the new oil and in the current economic climate all organisations are looking to exploit the information it holds as much as possible.
