Cyber Swachhta Kendra — Botnet cleaning and malware analysis Centre launched


From The Indian Express:

“India today joined the distinguished club of countries that have malware-cleaning systems for the use of its citizens. As of now, we have 13 banks and internet service providers using this facility. With the expanding digital footprint in the country, I see a surge in start-ups in the area of cyber security by the end of the year,” said Union IT and Electronics Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad at the event here.

Another good element is the launch of Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERT-In) in the States, rather than just at the Centre.
