Inaugurating an information security conference — ‘Ground Zero Summit-2015’ here, the Home Minister said the government was concerned about cyber security and steps have been taken in this regard.

“Cyber crimes are a big threat and they are increasing. Many forces in this domain are trying to lure young minds. We can’t be fully secure until we have good cyber security,” he said. Singh said efforts must be made to ensure that the country’s systems and networks were updated properly.
The Home Minister said the government will soon set up a cyber crime coordination centre following a suggestion of an expert committee in this regard. The Home Ministry had recently said a Rs 400 crore cybercrime control hub, to be called ‘Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre’ (IC4), will be set up to check cyber crime, including child pornography and online abuse, as per the recommendations of the committee.
