With multiple disruptions noticed in the past few years, Indian cyberspace has been prone to attacks and other issues. Now, the latest intervention by C3iHub will help in boosting the safety of the sensitive sector through the introduction of inventive services and products.
Reportedly, a senior official informed that nearly 25 groups will be aided with initial funding every year. First, the lags in cyberspace security will be identified and the trained professional will devise ideas to resolve expected problems. Thereafter, these ideas will be transformed into operational plans and the officials will also try to rope in high-level support for large-scale execution.
