Mohit Yadav, an Ethical Hacker and cybersecurity expert, has taken the initiative to enhance cybersecurity in India by training young IT Security aspirants to tackle cyber threats and attackers. With Craw Security, he aims to improve the state of cybersecurity in the country as it steps into 2023.
The Worrisome State Of India’s Cyber Infrastructure
India’s cyber revolution has gained worldwide attention over the last few years. With Government-led initiatives for virtual payment and businesses of all scales embracing digitization, the country is using technology like never before. Along with these benefits, peaking digitization has provided cyber-attackers with multiple opportunities to breach into systems and compromise their security.
Cyber attacks in India have increased significantly over time. From fraudulent Chinese applications seeking access to people’s personal data to organized attacks on the security of prestigious institutions. Moreover, you can watch how ongoing cyber attackers have successfully breached the highest secured networking of renowned organizations, such as the following:
AIIMS New Delhi, Data Breach: One of a kind, a recent AIIMS, Delhi Servers, got hacked by Chinese hackers; that took around 10 days to resolve and got back on track.
Twitter Data Breach: The data of 40 Crores Twitter users (including Sundar Pichai and Salman Khan) data got breached and listed for sale on the dark web.
IRCTC Data Breach: Around 30 million IRCTC users’ data was breached and up for sale on the dark web.
