NITI Aayog member V.K. Saraswat on Monday said the think-tank of the central government will push policies for the indigenous manufacture of electronics and hardware to strengthen India’s cyber security.
Saraswat, a former Defence Research and Development Organisation chief, stressed on the creation of indigenous technologies through ‘Make in India’ in electronics and hardware sector to prevent the country’s vulnerability to cyber threats.
“Cyber defence or cyber security is very important. If cyber space is weak in today’s scenario, the country’s economy is going to be affected. So it is very important for us to develop tools for cyber defence,” the NITI (National Institution for Transforming India) Aayog member told media persons here.
