According to Wikipedia, India ranks 3rd in terms of the highest number of Internet users in the world after USA and China as of 2012, but in terms of cybersecurity it has a long way to go. Cybercrime is big in India and has targetted both individuals as well as organizations across the country. One of the key agendas of the National Cyber Security Policy of India is to create a taskforce of 5,00,000 cybersecurity professionals in the next five years. Public and private sector partnership (PPP) is also seen as a key step to counter cybercrime. Discussions on cybersecurity have become a matter of utmost importance.
