This collaboration facilitates the exchange of expertise, support, and information, necessary to secure the Indian cyber-space.
CloudSEK Information Security Pvt. Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India, to augment the cybersecurity readiness of Indian government bodies, businesses, and consumers. CloudSEK and CERT-In, together, intend to strengthen threat intelligence sharing mechanisms and provide the technical expertise required to enhance the current cybersecurity landscape in the country.
This collaboration aims to provide CERT-In with relevant and latest cyber threat intelligence regarding potential software vulnerabilities and cyber threat trends. The MoC will promote the exchange of expertise and enable cybersecurity workshops/training programs that will help to enhance the Indian cybersecurity community’s proficiency to defend against sophisticated attack-vectors and cybercriminals.
Dr. Sanjay Bahl, Director-General, CERT-In said, “Cyber-attack trends are increasing rapidly with the easy availability of sophisticated tools and techniques to launch targeted attacks. A strong threat intelligence feed is a must-have weapon for any sector to stay prepared, and to defend against sophisticated attacks. CloudSEK’s collaboration with CERT-In will strengthen the threat intelligence arsenal of CERT-In and will be of great benefit to the Indian cyber-space. This will enhance the technical expertise, preparedness, and readiness of critical sectors in India to proactively address the latest threats.”
“Threat intelligence is the key to stay updated and make proactive security decisions. CloudSEK, in collaboration with CERT-In, will utilise vast amounts of threat data generated by XVigil, BeVigil, and its internal teams, to strengthen the security of the Indian cyber-space. This collaboration facilitates the sharing of technical expertise and support in the field of cyber security, through training/workshops. Joining hands with CERT-In will accelerate the growth of CloudSEK and also advance us further in our path towards reaching our vision. CloudSEK is committed to the security, privacy, reliability, and integrity of the Indian cyber community and aspires to improve the current cyber security landscape in the country,” added Rahul Sasi, Founder & Executive Chairman, CloudSEK.
