The Home Minister Rajnath Singh expressed concern over the rising incidents of sharing pornography over the internet and directed for an effective mechanism to strictly monitor cyber space and block website flouting India’s laws, especially child porn.
The Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) and the Cyber Police Force will be set up under the newly created Cyber & Information Security (CIS) Division of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs.
The CIS Division will have four Wings, namely security clearance, cyber crime prevention, cyber security and information security wings each headed by an under secretary level officer. It is also proposed to appoint the chief information security officer (CISO) and deputy CISO. An online portal for preparing, follow up and issue of advisory on financial fraud related matters is also in the offing.
