Nasscom does its bit

Delivering a lecture on cyber security at CID Head Quarters here on Wednesday, Deputy Inspector General (CID), D V Guruprasad disclosed that the Week would be observed at all district headquarters in association with National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM).

Admitting that the police were not adequately equipped to deal with cyber crimes, Guruswamy revealed that not even a single person accused in as many as 307 such crimes registered in the State since Information Technology Act came into force in 2000 has been punished so far.

The charge sheet has been filed only in 60 cases. He pointed out that most of the police personnel did not even know about a thing as simple as a computer hard disk.
A CID Cyber Lab would be set up at Mangalore soon to lessen the burden on Bangalore centre, he announced.

Cautioning about the possibilities of cyber space being used for subversive and terror activities, he called upon the media to create awareness among the public and be vigilante against it.
