The Haryana Information Technology and Telecom Enabled Industries Confederation (Hitec), a body represented by top companies such as Microsoft, Airtel, IBM, ZTE, Aircel, KPMG, Deloitte, Uninor and others will give a presentation before the Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT on March 5 over setting up a universal station in Gurgaon that will function as a helpline for cyber security reporting and analyses across the country.
The 30-minute presentation will showcase the outcomes of the locally done demonstrations by Hitec over a period of one month and if given an approval will stand to get some budget allocation for the project to kick-off, said Pradeep Yadav, chief technology officer of ZTE Technology.
“We will talk about cloud computing, wifi-enabled buses, Metro trains and taxis, monitoring cyber attacks, network and IT audit, lab certification, creating jobs, and a converge contact centre to facilitate electronic-medicine and helping farmers,” said Yadav.
As many as 371 cyber crime cases under various sections of Information Act were registered in 2012 at Gurgaon as against 300 in 2011.
Experts believe that the number of cyber crime cases reported was just a tip of the iceberg as majority of such cases were not reported by the affected companies for the fear of these incidents bringing a bad name to them.
Local MP Rao Inderjit Singh, who is also the chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT, has already been presented with the initial proposals.
