Rajesh Kumar, IPS., said we should not wait for a major attack on Cyber World and act reactive, rather we should proactively work to create deterrances to protect vital systems. He said it is a usual practice for corporates to retrofit their IT Security infrastructure which may be potential for cracks but rather look at robust security controls & invest in infrastructure.

He said it is important for Industry & Academia to come together in creating more qualified Cyber Security professionals in the days to come to meet the ever-growing demand and bridge the gap that is existing.
