MSS is the key opportunity for India, registering the highest growth of more than 12 per cent and largest market size ($18 billion).“For India to become a global cyber security hub, a list of 16 initiatives has been formulated by Nasscom-DSCI. Effective programme roll-out and strategic vision realisation will require disciplined management of the 16 key initiatives suggested by the report,” said R Chandrashekhar, President, Nasscom.Nasscom said the Indian IT industry is set to reach a size of $350-$400 billion by 2025.
