U.S. Needs To Build Partnership With India On Cyber Security

Washington: The US needs to build up partnership with India on cyber security issues, eminent American experts have said, noting that New Delhi faces threat in the cyber sphere from Pakistan, China and non-state actors.

"The Indians' primary concern in cyber security is with Pakistan and Pakistani non-state actors or state-sponsored actors launching some kind of attack against India. Their second concern is Chinese espionage," James Lewis, Director and Senior Fellow, Centre for Strategic International Studies' Technology and Public Policy Programme, told lawmakers during a Congressional hearing.

"One of the things that works in our favor is they aren't particularly friends with the Chinese all the time, and they worry a lot about it. So we have an opportunity to work with India. The thing we have to avoid in doing that is giving the impression that we're trying to contain China," he said.
