Hyderabad, Sep. 13 (ANI): Aiming to prevent cyber crimes in the country, students in Hyderabad are learning and mastering the intricacies of cyber security.

In the fast developing countries where information technology (IT) has reached the apex, the security of data compiled, stored and transmitted is of utmost import.

According to analysts, the requirement of employees for preventing cyber crimes in India is higher as compared to other countries.

"E-commerce has made a very huge impact in every country's economy. So whenever you use Internet, you need security. It is a very booming and open market that is going to be coming in few days," noted Vikram, a student of cyber security.

In the times when cyber terrorism and cyber warfare have tried to cripple infrastructure of various nations, a proper cyber mechanism is the need of the hour.

"The government has to take serious initiative on awareness, training technology transfer and then we can call it as security development. I mean to say, you have to have a proper infrastructure in place. For all these, it takes long time. It's not a one-day or a two-day initiative. It takes probably half a decade," said Zaki Qureshi, a software professional and an expert in cyber security.

Cyber security is very important to protect the IT services in corporate establishments, government organisations as well as the ones used by the general public.

The same must be a part of the national policy. Unfortunately, cyber security in India is yet to pick up among the IT users, noted Zaki Qureshi. (ANI)
