Telecom Security Policy

Close on the heels of the announcement of the National Cyber Security Policy, the Government is likely to announce a “Telecom Security Policy”. The draft of the policy is said to have been submitted to the National Information Board and after a review, will be submitted to the Cabinet Committee for approval.

More details here:

The policy is likely to address the issue of dependence of Indian telecom network on imported hardware and the consequent risk exposure.  It may therefore suggest audit of hardware and software at periodical intervals besides testing and certification at the time of purchase.

In the Cyber security policy also the Government has indicated the requirement of ensuring mandatory legal audits, following of global best practices, development of security culture etc.

The twin policies if properly implemented will significantly improve the security in the Indian Cyber Space.
