Chennai, Oct 28: The Tamil Nadu Government will unveil a comprehensive IT Security Policy with inputs from industry bodies, to protect its e-governance project and to stay ahead of others in the race.
Speaking at iSec-2007, a two-day conference on 'information security', organised by the Southern India Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI) here, State IT Secretary C Chandramouli said the State Government was using Tamil Nadu State Wide Area Network (TNSWAN) to implement e-governance in various departments.
''The TNSWAN will be used for intra-governmental activities and as secured payment gateway for which it needs a rigid IT Security Policy.'' ''The guidelines will be drawn on the lines of the SETS (Society for Electronic Transactions and Security) prepared by the Centre,'' he said.

At present we were seeking inputs from industry bodies for finalising the policy, he added.
