CP urges Industry for Cyber Security Audits
In order to effectively arrest the growing menace of cyber security frauds, Visakhapatnam’s Police Commissioner, Mr CH Srikanth, IPS has urged industry to regularly carry out cyber security audits in their respective organizations.
‘Any industry that values their core data and its privacy needs to regularly carry out these audits as it will only help them safeguard their data’ said the city’s police commissioner speaking to Vizag Industrial Scan.
As cyber security crimes become more sophisticated in their operation and execution it has become seemingly difficult for police to get back the siphoned money.
‘These crimes are highly complex in nature and when a cyber crime occurs it is highly difficult to detect and get back the stolen amount’ noted Mr Ch Srikanth.
Albeit the CP informed that the cyber security cell in the city is in the process of getting aggrandized and adequate training is being given to the officers to deal with such menaces it is highly cumbersome to get back money that has been erroneously taken away.
‘It is not realistic for us to send our officers abroad when a cyber crime has originated from a different country’ cited Mr Srikanth.
He thus advocated industry at large to protect their valuable data and to implement measures that can safeguard both your and client data.
‘Keeping the competitive nature of businesses in mind Cyber security audits are thus a good precautionary measure from preventing cyber crimes from happening’ reiterated the Police Commissioner.
Talking on the issue of increasing traffic Mr Srikanth said that this is one of his top priorities and that necessary steps are being taken to address this.
‘People make an impression of a city when they look at basic things as to how traffic is being handled, how the constable on the road is behaving etc. Thus these are things we need to take care of and steps are being undertaken to ease out traffic woes’ informed the CP.
