In July 2012 over 10,000 high-security Government of India email accounts were hacked. Among these were the Prime Minister’s Office; the national intelligence agencies; and the ministries of defense, home affairs, finance, and external affairs. The scope and scale of the hackers’ penetration was mind-boggling. Government agencies were completely unprepared for this attack, despite prior warning from the National Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Centre (NCIIPC). Even more shocking is that this is not a one-off event. The India Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) says that there were 8,266 instances of cyber security breaches in 2009. This shot up to 13,201 in 2011. The number of breaches are going up and our cyber vulnerabilities are being exposed to the hacker community at large. Cyber security is a critical matter of national security. At jeopardy are telecommunication, nuclear power, public health, banking, aviation, and the economy at large.
