The Home Minister of India, Rajnath Singh, says cyber crimes pose a challenge to traditional policing and called upon the police personnel to hone their skills to tackle the threats posed from the cyber world.
Inaugurating the Cyber Prevention, Awareness & Detection Centre (CyPAD) of Delhi Police and National Cyber Forensic Lab in New Delhi on Monday (February 18), he pointed out that cyber crime has emerged as a big challenge. “If we have to build public trust in a the digital world, then we need to have zero tolerance towards cyber crime,” he suggested.
The Lt. Governor of Delhi, Anil Baijal, and Delhi Police Commissioner, Amulya Patnaik also spoke on the occasion.
The Home Minister said in this era of internet and computers, there exists an aspect of cyber crime including cyber cheating or fraud, women harassment, and terror recruitment – which needs to be strongly addressed.
Internet is not only aiding the evolution of social media, but it is also crucial to online banking, shopping, and remotely operated systems in industry. “We have to develop institutional mechanisms for undertaking timely assessment to challenges in cyber space and securing it for the common man,” he said.
