According to the new MoU, CBI and NASSCOM will share the experiences on controlling cyber crime. Also, Nasscom and Data Security Council of India (DSCI) will act as knowledge partners for the CBI in the area of cyber security.
"Cyber security is emerging as a major corporate and government concern worldwide. This partnership will enable Nasscom to play the role of a facilitator and bring the latest technological developments to the CBI," said Nasscom President Som Mittal.
"Cyber crime detection and investigation are crucial to both the government and private sector due to its implications for security and economy. The government and law enforcement agencies on the one hand and the private sector led by the IT companies on the other can come together and forge a collaboration to fight this threat," CBI Director Ashwani Kumar said.
