He maintains that training personnel remains the challenge when it comes to dealing with digital crime.
The national Information Security Education & Awareness (ISEA) programme expects to train over one lakh people — not just police personnel — by 2020.
Dr Anup Girdhar, CEO of Sedulity Solutions & Technologies, a cyber crime investigation company says that 100-200 Indian cops are trained in one session which varies from a day to a month. “Our trainings are more incident-based but we have three sessions for each cop. First, it’s all about understanding technology followed by vulnerabilities and at last we teach them how to mitigate an attack. Until a cop clears the first session he’s not taken to the next level.”
