Police to Provide Cybersecurity to Educational Institutions

Police to Provide Cybersecurity to Educational Institutions - top government contractors - best government contracting eventIn an effort to stem data theft and phishing attacks against state colleges and universities, the Indian Cyber Crime Cell of Ahmedabad Detection of Crime Branch (DCB) has opted to provide the educational institutions with cybersecurity solutions.

With universities vulnerable to cyber attack, highlighted by a recent data tampering incident at the Gujarat University by a student, the police are offering cyber aid to ensure the protection of educational institutions’ data, according to the Indian Express. Inspector Kiran Patel, part of the Cyber Crime Cell, told reporters that university budgets are too small and too focused on presentations to be effective at stemming cyber attacks.

“The websites of small institutes perhaps do not use proper security software and large institutes give more importance to making their websites more accessible,” he said. “They want maximum students to use their website in short time. They design websites that do not take much time to load and are attractive for students and end up paying no attention to security.“
