Training centres to be set up that can equip local companies with requisite skills to counter cyber-attacks

Israel-based cyber security firm CyberGym, is scouting for an Indian partner to set up training centres that can equip local companies with the requisite skills to counter cyber-attacks. Termed as arenas, these centres will simulate cyber-attacks in real time and demonstrate the way to deal with such situations.

India is among the 10 countries that are most acutely victimised by online banking malware. Risk of privacy exposure due to app-use is also a concern for India. Of all incidents of privacy exposure in 2013, 9% of them were Indian companies and entities.

"Now more than ever, consumers and corporations must be diligent in understanding vulnerabilities, and what should be done from a security perspective to protect personal data and guard against compromised privacy." Gilad Yoshi, Vice President and Cofounder at CyberGym said. His company has received interest from organisations in India to ward off cyber-attacks. For example, dozens of computer networks in Ukraine have been infected for years by an aggressive cyber espionage tool kit called Snake, according to a report published by British-based defence and security company BAE Systems.
