Govt may connect with NEC for cyber-security academy
Japan’s technology company NEC has initiated dialogues with the Indian government and public sector to set up an academy to build capabilities for cyber-security in the country. “We have initiated discussions since the beginning of this year on collaboration in cyber-security and safe city capabilities in India,” Koichiro Koide managing director of NEC India said here on Thursday. He stressed on the need to build capacities and capabilities in the form of hardware, software and manpower in India. “We have the concepts for cyber-security and safe-city, but we need the Indian government support to proceed with building up resources,” said Koide at the three-day Interpol World Congress 2015. Cyber-security is one of the strategic collaborations being worked on government-to-government basis between India and Japan. Koide said the first likely collaboration for an academy or laboratory-type set up would be with the central government around Delhi area.
