Workshop on Cyber Security

Cyber-attacks are increasingly impacting businesses, privacy of individuals as well as security of nations. This has led to creation of cyber defense mechanisms worldwide but still the attacks continue.

Ever increasing connectivity and sophistication of attacks calls for concrete steps by all parties to prevent and defend from cyber-attacks

The Global ICT Standardisation Forum for India (GISFI) Security & Privacy Working Group (S&P WG) has been working on Cyber Security.
