Emergence of the Digi-Era
Digital India presents a tremendous opportunity for growth, sustainability and social improvement. The concept involves so many different technologies communicating with each other in so many ways, that the only way to predict and eliminate all possible security issues is from planning through to the actual implementation of digital technologies. Enabling embedded technologies and leveraging the Internet of Things in every district and village infrastructure brings risk that must be considered and monitored to maintain safety for citizens. With Digital India initiative, a lot of data will be collected by different bodies and this needs to be protected.
Kaspersky Lab deals in critical infrastructure where data gets protected and intends to provide complete security solution which will deal with all kinds of cyber threats to government bodies, industries and organizations. Kaspersky wants to work with government planners and builders to raise awareness about cyber threats and share information on how to mitigate those threats before they can impact the public. Also, Kaspersky has alliances with specific partners who have a focus on the government vertical. This coupled with the company’s expertise in the IT security landscape, makes the preferred choice for many government departments.
