Despite having exhibited a strong awareness of cyber security issues, policy ambiguity and inaction have left India without a tangible government cyber strategy. Indian cyber legislation is out of date and poorly implemented. Cybercrime facilities are frequently misused as instruments of state censorship and the promised establishment of a military Cyber Command has not been delivered. Government interaction with the private sector on cyberspace has improved and there has been a concerted effort to develop India’s digital economy. Unfortunately, levels of internet penetration remain very low and progress on national infrastructure is required to improve Indian cyber maturity.
