Cyber crimes pose challenge to traditional policing: Home Minister

PTI
Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that cyber crimes pose a challenge to traditional policing and called upon the Police personnel to enhance their skills to tackle threats posed from the cyber world. 

Mr Singh was speaking after inaugurating the Cyber Prevention, Awareness and Detection Centre (CyPAD) of the Delhi Police in New Delhi today. He said, CyPAD will deal with crypto-currency frauds and international tech-supported frauds. 

Mr Singh said, the Internet is a platform not only aiding the evolution of social media, but also crucial to online banking, shopping and remotely operated systems in the industry. 

The Minister said, the country has to develop an institutional mechanism for undertaking timely assessment of challenges in the cyberspace and securing it for the common man.

The Minister said, the government has initiated several steps in the last more than four years to deal with cyber crimes. This includes setting up of an Inter-Ministerial Committee on Phone Frauds. 

Under the Cyber Crime Prevention against Women and Children scheme, the online cybercrime reporting portal cybercrime.gov.in has been operationalized.
