Russia – China Pledge Non Aggression in Cyber Warfare: Have They Ushered in an Era of Bilateral Cyber Agreements?

Sanjeev Relia writes: On 9 May 2015, Russia and China signed a pledge of non-aggression in cyber warfare. This is the first ever bilateral treaty on cyber warfare signed between two nations who themselves are known to have undertaken large scale cyberattacks in the past. In the absence of an international law governing the use of cyberspace for waging a war, nations need to work on bilateral treaties to prevent cyberspace from threatening national security.


Armed Forces Need to Learn from the CDA(O) Hack and Protect their Critical Information

Sanjeev Relia writes: The Times of India newspaper recently reported that the Controller of Defence Accounts (officers) website at Pune had been hacked into and sensitive data about Indian Army officers had been stolen. A quick check of the web page shows that the hacker had defaced the website too. This instance highlights India’s poor preparedness poorly in protecting sensitive information against new methods of surveillance and espionage, particularly in the cyber domain.


A Cyber Pearl Harbor Can Happen In India Too

Sanjeev Relia points out that India is in a race against time to build effective infrastructure to ward off a major cyber attack and that private industry needs to join hands with government agencies in this great task.
