Government sets up NIC-CERT centre to detect and prevent cyber attacks

December 12, 2017

According to Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MietY), the government has set up NIC- CERT (National Informatics Centre- computer emergency response team) centre that will monitor, detect and prevent cyber attacks on government networks. Besides, the government has called a meeting of state IT ministers which will also include discussions on cyber-security and safety. The ministry added that there has been an exponential growth in cyber attacks, leading to concerns of data theft that prompted the government to work on Data Protection Act.

The centre will monitor the traffic and movement of information across various networks against any suspicious activity. It will also alert the concerned parties in case it detects any malicious activity. NIC helps government agencies build their digital presence. Further, the government has already announced setting up of similar frameworks for the finance and power sectors.

NIC-CERT will also work in close coordination and collaboration with sectoral CERT’s and CERT-In. Using various tools, the team at NIC-CERT will be able to identify vulnerabilities and possible exploits and the intelligence gathered will give CERT the ability to predict and prevent attacks.
