India’s upcoming National Cybersecurity Strategy will have an element of sovereignty, and it will set deliverables for enterprises to address gaps in India’s ecosystem.
It is like a guideline which addresses the entire ecosystem. So it will address cyber crimes, capacity building, audits, research and developments, and all aspects will be addressed. A number of deliverables will be there.
The strategy will follow the principles of Common But Differentiated Responsibility (CBDR), which puts the onus of cybersecurity on all involved parties, including corporates, users, academia and governments. The policy, which is awaiting approval at the cabinet, will make changes to the 2013 version and will be “futuristic”, while addressing the “entire ecosystem” involved.
