Delivering the keynote address at the India Information Security Conference (Infosec) here, Mr Schmidt said, ''Information Security is a concern for governments, corporate houses and the public at large and it is time to share best practices between government agencies, academic institutions, and major corporations, so as to make Information and Communication Technology systems work better for all of us.''
