Reading List: Impact of India’s New Cybersecurity Directions; June 2nd #Ad

We’re gearing up for our event on the Impact of India’s New Cybersecurity Directions next week. MediaNama is hosting this session online on Thursday (June 2) with our audience of citizens and professionals interested in technology policy.

India’s new cybersecurity directions, issued via its agency CERT-In, enforce some significant changes in how digital companies, big and small, operate in India. That makes it crucial for us to hone in on these directions and understand the perspectives of key stakeholders.

Our event will bring together diverse perspectives on the directions from a variety of stakeholders. Register now to attend this event.
