Andhra Pradesh Cyber Security Summit

As Flipkart-Cambridge Analytica, as well as Aadhaar data leak issues, have made their way into the country, the Indian government authorities, corporates as well as startups have started laying the groundwork for better cybersecurity measures.

The fourth Industrial Revolution is coming and India is accelerating its digital growth! There is a growing national focus on smart cities, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and a startling rise in digital payments and fintech adoption. Success in digital expansion requires robust and effective strategies to tackle growing cyber threats.

The Andhra Pradesh Cyber Security Summit thus aims to take in views from cybersecurity experts and the Indian startup ecosystem stakeholders around the national impact of cybersecurity as well as the efforts of the AP Government in enhancing greater cyber resilience and security.

The objective of the summit is to bring together government representatives and stakeholders from across India and international jurisdictions to share their experiences on the various issues which they have faced and contextualising them for future responses. The summit is being hosted by the State Government of Andhra Pradesh, in association with MasterCard.

The 2018 World Intellectual Property Day campaign celebrates the brilliance, ingenuity, curiosity and courage of the women who are driving change in our world and shaping our common future.
