Security Awareness Endeavour
Data Security Council of India (DSCI), with industry support, has embarked upon the ‘Security Awareness Endeavour’ of national importance that aims to target Small & Medium Businesses(SMBs) as a key industry sector along with academic institutions . There are over 51 million micro, small and medium businesses present in the country whose contribution to GDP of India is significant which in in the range of 15-20 %. Currently 5 - 6 % of these organizations have online presence and majority of them have started the journey to be a digital organization. This initiative will entail reaching out to a larger SMBs and academic institutions audience and sensitize them about Cyber Security concerns, ways and means they could adopt to be a secure digital organization.
This program is envisaged with consideration of specific digital transformation drivers for SMBs and Academia in India. It includes drivers such as rise of social commerce, cloud offerings, e-commerce boom, industrialization 4.0, machine learning, rise in online presence, automation and productivity enhancement with IT adoption etc. During the journey to adopt these digital transformation drivers SMBs and Academia in India are faced with complex cyber security issues which includes dynamic cyber threats, leakage of IPR/sensitive information, protecting business applications, privacy and data protection requirements , IT system protections , cyber bullying and identity theft etc.
Hence it is imperative for ‘SMBs/Academia’ to be sensitized on cyber security awareness leveraging interactive platforms such as CBTs, Videos and Games etc. We request your participation in this program so that your ‘organization/academic institution’ can be benefited with the help of awareness content of this program to be developed by DSCI along with Industry support.
