Rajnath reviews ways to tackle cyber crimes

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday directed officials to speed up the setting up of a Cyber Police Force and Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) to tackle rising cyber crimes.

Singh's directions came at a meeting to discuss this year's action plan of the Cyber and Information Security (CIS) Division, created under the Ministry of Home Affairs on November 10, 2017.

The CIS Division will have four wings - Security Clearance, Cyber Crime Prevention, Cyber Security and Information Security - each headed by an Under Secretary level officer.

The meeting also proposed to appoint the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and Deputy CISO. An online portal - cyberpolice.gov.in - for preparing, follow up and issue of advisory on financial fraud related matters is also in the offing.

In the meeting, the home minister expressed concern over rising incidents of sharing pornography over the internet. He directed for an effective mechanism to strictly monitor cyber space and block website flouting India's laws, especially child porn.
