While Addressing a national conference on cyber and national security, Union home minister Amit Shah on Monday underlined the need for ensuring India’s cyber security and said the country cannot develop without it.
“India cannot develop without the development of cyber security,” said Shah. He added if cyber security is not ensured, it can become a challenge. Shah referred to the efforts of technocrats to safeguard online space while underling the importance of awareness. “Unless citizens are not technologically educated and aware, we will not be able to use our full potential.”
Amit Shah also mentioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to strengthen India through technology and the Internet. He said the Digital India campaign has empowered citizens and led to positive change due to Prime Minister’s efforts.
