We emphasise the need of protecting our nation’s critical infrastructure from malicious cyber activity and individuals and companies from ransomware and other threats during Cybersecurity Awareness Month. We also educate Indians on the easy steps they may take to secure their sensitive data and stay safe online.
Cyberattacks have an impact on our daily life, the economy, and national security. They can disrupt electric grids and fuel pipelines, hospitals and police agencies, companies and schools, and many other important services that Indians rely on every day by damaging, corrupting, or stealing information from our computer systems and networks. As a result, my Administration began working quickly to protect our country and strengthen our defences against cyberattacks.
