PPP in securing National Cyber Space

National Cyber Security Policy (2013) vide Clause L provides:

i) To facilitate collaboration and cooperation among stakeholder entities including private sector, in the area of cyber security in general and protection of critical information infrastructure in particular for actions related to cyber threats, vulnerabilities, breaches, potential protective measures, and adoption of best practices.

ii) To create models for collaborations and engagement with all relevant stakeholders.

iii) To create a think tank for cyber security policy inputs, discussion and deliberations

Privately owned and operated critical infrastructure that is regarded as a potential National Security vulnerability also raises concerns about the allocation of responsibility and accountability in terms of cyber security.

The round table would discuss the present status of PPP, future strategies for PPP in securing National Cyber Space in India and also consider following issues:

- Private sector actors are gradually becoming supranational, as global tech platforms start playing a bigger role, going beyond national legislations

- The role of citizens and NGOs

- Role of the Government in a public-private relationship on cybersecurity- education, awareness building and assistance to private actors who don’t have knowledge or resources to secure their cyberspace.

- Complexity of public-private cooperation in cybersecurity due to role of global tech platforms.  

- Importance of the contribution of the corporate sector to domestic cybersecurity.

- Creation of a trust network, where private actors provide assistance to protect critical infrastructure

Please confirm your interest in joining physically or virtually and if interested in taking table space or sponsorship of the program to Ms Manisha, GM Cyber Security Association of India/TEMA/CMAI at whats app 9999175001.
