Development in any fields has its own pros and cons. Like for instance, development in information technology has given rise to more number of cyber attacks like hacking, phishing, espionage, financial theft, etc. A country like India has seen a growing number of cyber assaults; government departments particularly defence establishments, coming under attack. It has also witnessed many such attacks and the misuse of social media and Internet that brought home the threat of cyber-terrorism. The cyber security experts said the country is poorly equipped to handle as the cyber crime cells in the country does not function actively as it should be, reports Rediff.


Since 2001, most of the Indian cyber crime cells have been established and got four complaints on an average, per day. Altogether around 15000 complaints have been registered since the last decade. But, around 85 percent of such cases have resulted in exonerations or the police itself have closed the cases for lack of evidence from the Internet service providers.
