Moderator: Bharat Anand, CTO & CSO, NATGRID
Speaker: Col. K. P. Bhat, Consultant & Advisor, NCIIPC, Govt
Nation-state attacks often have close links to military intelligence or state control apparatus with a high degree of technical expertise. India is fighting off an array of disruptive attacks that include advanced malware, sophisticated distributed denial-of-service attacks, and nation-state actors targeting DNS protocols as part of ongoing espionage campaigns. The nation could be vulnerable to cyber espionage because its critical infrastructure is becoming increasingly dependent on automated data processing and vast computer networks, making it vulnerable to such information warfare techniques. Are organizations in India well-equipped to mitigate the risk of nation-state actors that have a 'license to hack"?In this session, an expert shares:
- New techniques used by the nation-state actors to steal critical information;
- New cyberdefense techniques and strategies to tackle the nation-state threats;
- Law enforcement challenges in combating such attacks.
