  2. 2. EVENT REPORTCONFERENCE ON CYBER CRIME CONTROL Cyber Crime - Law Enforcement Agencies’ Perspective As law enforcement agencies play the most crucial role in cyber crime control, this panel discussion focused on the challenges faced by them and proposed possible solutions. Issues related to capacity building and cooperation between the law enforcement agencies of various states were discussed threadbare. It was concluded that a lot of efforts are going into connecting the law enforcement agencies of various states and that almost all states are now moving in the right direction vis-à-vis cyber crime control. However, the deliberations threw up a major concern — lack of cooperation beyond the national borders — primarily for want of inter- national policy frameworks. The participants concurred that cooperation could be promptly extended if requests are made to the relevant foreign agencies following the right processes. Cyber Warfare and Defence With some countries adopting cyber warfare as the new tool to disrupt communications, logistics and steal national secrets, India must be ready to accept and respond to this new form of warfare. The participants underlined that currently, cyber warfare is dealt with more on an institutional level rather than at the national level. The panelists emphasised the need for active implementation of cyber security measures to guard sensitive installations against cyber attacks.

  3. 3. EVENT REPORT CONFERENCE ON CYBER CRIME CONTROL Privacy & Social Media: Issues on Internet This session went beyond the apparent to discover the psychology of the contemporary world that has led to such a massive popularity of social media. It analysed how social media platforms can be used to take proactive actions to prevent unscrupulous elements from doing any damage to the social fabric or committing any other undesirable act. It also focused on some tools to gather and analyse social media data for administrative purposes. Cyber Crime Outlook 2015 and the Way Forward Nature of the present-day cyber threats came up for discussion in this session, which sought to stress upon the fact one-size-fits-all theory won’t work in this context. That being the reason, what is required today is to put in place customised cyber crime control solutions. The need for a cohesive action by administrative bodies, intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies, which can together take effective control of cyber crimes by deploying cutting edge software applications to predict and prevent cyber crimes was stressed upon. Mr Ponnurangam Kumaraguru, Founding Head, Cybersecurity Education and Research Centre (CERC), addresses the gathering on Internet issues. Mr Pawan Desai, CEO, Mitkat Advisory Services Pvt Ltd, talks about the ways to prevent cyber crimes. Esteemed speakers pose for a group photograph at the end of the deliberations.
