India, as the initiator, has made a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Reuters to develop a better cyber security in their national territory on Tuesday, April 4th, 2017, in front of Audio Visual Room, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences Building, Parahyangan Catholic University, Bandung, Indonesia.
Cyber security is an important matter for state, as the threat for its safety will be dangerous for national security. The safety of the cyber space for other actors such as private sectors, media, and international organizations inside the state becomes the responsibility of the state. The state needs to protect and ensure cyber security through all means. Therefore, India are cooperating with Reuters to protect the cyber security for both parties.
Both parties will ensure the security and resilience of both networks and promoting a safe digital environment, strengthen cooperation in India’s cyber sphere, provide cyber security response and protection through CERT-In (Indian Computer Emergency Response, a government organization under Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of India) to Reuters India, and prevent the intervention of government, including the integration of political interest with the media, unless related to national security concerns. With this MoU, both India and Reuters hope that it would protect both parties from any kind of cybercrime and ensure a safe cyberspace within India.
