Chinese hackers and India cyber forensics

Published by at 9:05 am under India Attacks

India considers attacks on its information network by Chinese hackers a threat to national security:

(f) Cyber War and Cyber Terrorism in India

India is also suffering from the menaces of cyber war and cyber terrorism. Nobody cares about any these threats in India. Far more citizens were concerned of the Amarnath issue than by potential risks of nuclear conflict, or near-breakdowns in Net and mobile security.[2] China’s intensified cyber warfare against India is becoming a serious threat to national security. In October 2007, Chinese hackers defaced over 143 Indian websites. In April 2008, Indian intelligence agencies detected Chinese hackers breaking into the computer network of the Ministry of External Affairs forcing the government to think about devising a new strategy to fortify the system. As a countermeasure, the Indian armed forces are trying to enhance their C4ISR capabilities, so that the country can launch its own cyber offensive if the need arises.[3] Similarly, Pakistan is taking steps to intensify its cyber war propaganda against India with the help of its intelligence outfit, the ISI by carrying reports of alleged communal fissures taking place on the Indian side of Kashmir.[4] Issues like these have to be resolved as well.

    Government of India please wake up

    Hats off to Mr. Praveen Dalal for his awareness drive. He is undoubtedly the best in the industry. It is unfortunate for the government of India and industry players that they are not in a position to avail his expert services. He has recently come up with the first Indian cyber forensics trends-2008 that is eye opener. I hope the government will now wake up to the realities.

    Cyber Forensics in India-The Consolidated Reply

    Dear Readers.

    I am hereby posting the “consolidated reply” of our readers regarding the awareness drive of Mr. Praveen Dalal regarding cyber law and cyber forensics in India. I hope you will find them useful.

    GOOD NEWS. The government of India has accepted the recommendations and suggestions of Mr. Praveen Dalal, the Leading Techno-Legal ICT, Cyber Law, Cyber Security and Cyber Forensics Specialist of India.

    Not only Centre for Development of Advances Computing (CDAC) has been brought on line of http://computerforensicsinindia.blogspot.com/ but also lot of clues have been taken from http://reclaiming-india.blogspot.com/ .

    After persistent awareness drive by Mr. Dalal the Government finally decided to amend the IT Act, 2000 and allow use of cyber forensics evidence and tools in the courts in India.

    Let us hope that a working group on cyber forensics under the chairmanship of Mr. Praveen Dalal would be the next step.

    Law enforcement and intelligence in India needs good training. However, providing merely academic coaching would not serve the purpose. They need Techno-Legal training from experts like Mr. Praveen Dalal.

    Finally the Government has accepted the recommendations of Mr. Praveen Dalal. Hats off to Mr. Praveen Dalal for his awareness drive. He is undoubtedly the best in the industry. It is unfortunate for the government of India and industry players that they are not in a position to avail his expert services.

    What would you do with hard disks if you lack cyber forensics capabilities? Law enforcement and intelligence in India needs good training. However, providing merely academic coaching would not serve the purpose. They need Techno-Legal training from experts like Mr. Praveen Dalal.
    The cyber forensics trends in India-2008 are not very great. Kindly see http://computerforensicsinindia.blogspot.com/2008/08/cyber-forensics-trends-in-india-2008.html . For a general discussion on the topic, kindly see http://computerforensicsinindia.blogspot.com/2008/08/need-of-cyber-forensics-in-india.html.

    You chaps forget to mention about Mr. Dalal. Let me mention the same.

    About Mr. Praveen Dalal

    Mr. Praveen Dalal is the Managing Partner of Perry4Law and heading its PTLB, PTLITC, and other Techno-Legal Divisions that are providing Cyber Law, Cyber Security and Cyber Forensics Assistances and Services. Perry4Law is the First and Exclusive Techno-Legal and ICT Law Firm in India and is in operation since 2002. It deals with legal issues associated with ICT and use of ICT for legal purposes. PTLB and PTLITC are few of the Techno-Legal ICT initiatives of Perry4Law and are in the process of upgradation and formalisation. Mr. Praveen Dalal’s specialisations include areas like Cyber Law, Cyber Security, Cyber Forensics, Digital Evidencing, Corporate ICT Compliances, etc.

    (E) Rohit

    I agree with Mr. Praveen Dalal. Further, according to Mr Praveen Dalal, the Leading Techno-Legal ICT, Cyber Law, Cyber Security and Cyber Forensics Specialist of India, “Computer Forensics or Cyber Forensics in India has started gaining importance out of the necessity to deal with modern cyber crimes. Though India has taken some steps in the direction of enacting Information and Communication Technology (ICT) related law in the form of Information Technology Act, 2000 (IT Act, 2000), yet by and large it failed to provide a sound and secure law in this crucial direction. The result is too obvious. India has to depend upon foreign experts and institutions/universities even for the task of tracing an offender sending an offensive e-mail”.

    I hope the Government of India, Department/Ministry of Information Technology, Ministry/Department of Science and Technology, and Industry players like NASSCOM, FICCI, CII, etc would at least now think seriously of seeking the expert services of Mr. Praveen Dalal in the larger interest of India.

    (F) Kunal

    We are inviting big trouble by not keeping in mind the necessities of cyber security and cyber forensics in India. The ICT Trends in India-2006, ICT Trends in India-2007, Cyber Security Trends by PTLB-2007, etc are examples of faulty ICT/E-governance strategies and policies of India. Further, cyber forensics trends in India are also not conducive for the growth of legal enablement of ICT systems in India. Kindly see http://computerforensicsinindia.blogspot.com/2008/08/cyber-forensics-trends-in-india-2008.html in this regard. The net result is that law enforcement finds it difficult to deal with issues involving ICT. Kindly see http://legalnewsandviews.blogspot.com/2008/08/wireless-networks-and-law-enforcement.html for details.

    Praveen dalal is a massive fraud! Just read what he is saying… its a bunch of rubbish masquerading as legalese.. pay more attention to his shameless self promotion categorised as a “awareness drive”

    Very few experts exist in world like Praveen Dalal. It is good to see that he and Perry4Law are spreading public awareness of International Standards. I hope there would be a Working Group on Cyber Forensics by either UN, World Bank, NATO, etc where he can contribute his valuable expertise and acumen. This is more so when critical ICT infrastructure are vulnerable and at stake. Especially, US, UK, EU and India needs his expert services as sonn as possible. With President Obama serving US, there are greater chances of cooperation between US and India in this regard.
