Bangalore: In order to bolster the country’s defense against cyber attacks, the Prime Minister’s Office has approved a plan to spend 1000 crore over the next four years. The plan which involves setting up of new agencies and coordination cells to improve response to cyber threats awaits Cabinet Committee clearance, as reported by Economic Times.



Since 2012, the reinforcement of the country’s defense against cyber attacks has been taking place. The plan gained traction after a report of the Computer Emergency Response Team India (CERT-In) said cyber security threats rose from 23 in 2004 to 22,060 in 2012. According to the plan, the National Security Council Secretariat will coordinate among agencies and implement a policy outlined by the Intelligence Bureau, which comes under the Home ministry.



The project will require an estimated 200 crore each in the current and next fiscal year and 300 crore each in the following two years in the current five year plan.
