Govt to address misuse of cyber space: Prasad

Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday said the government will take steps to prevent misuse of cyber space by radical elements and terrorists.

Addressing the inaugural session of the fifth edition of the Global Conference on Cyber Space (GCCS) here, Prasad said, "Radical elements and terrorists are abusing social media platforms for perpetuating hate and terror but India is determined to address the misuse of cyber space and thwart them."

"The world needs to come together to address the misuse and abuse of the cyber space by terrorists and hackers."

"Misuse of Internet for child pornography is posing grave threat to childhood. Financial frauds and cyber attacks can eliminate the trust of ordinary citizens in the cyber space. Therefore, we all need to speak in one voice against cyber crimes," the Minister stressed.

Thousands of delegates from 131 countries and ministers from 26 countries are in the capital to attend the two-day event.
