NEW DELHI: In the backdrop of heightened concerns over cyber security, Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has appointed 18 security auditors, including Satyam, TCS, PWC and Sify, to identify vulnerabilities in the network infrastructure of various companies and organizations.

"In all, 18 companies have been short-listed and we will be announcing their appointment in a week or two. Amongst those who have been short-listed are Satyam, Sify, TCS, PWC, CyberQ and Sysman," Dr K.K. Bajaj, Director of CERT-In said.

The companies appointed would be responsible for undertaking infrastructure audits and work towards identifying network vulnerabilities or gaps, he said. These firms would audit networks, processes, people and technology that form an integral part of information systems of companies.

The model followed would involve voluntary compliance on the part of Government departments, public sector companies, critical infrastructure, even private sector organizations, Dr Bajaj added.
