New Delhi, April 21, 2016: As the zeal for the summer holidays commences this season, travellers are all set to gear up and expose their adventurous sides.

From the lofty peaks in the North to the serenity of the South, India has so much to offer for those looking for a perfect holiday destination in this season.

Apart from all travel essentials that need to be packed prior to a vacation, here are five categories of apps that can help make the vacation more organised:

  • Mobile Wallets: With India becoming digital, it is vital to keep a check on e-wallets. Updating your Paytm wallet from time to time can prevent you searching for ATMs during your vacation.
  • Food: Apps like Swiggy, Zomato and Foodpanda can help to order food from nearby restaurants. There are now apps which let you order 24/7 so that you can travel hunger free.
  • Transport: Going to a new city is always a tedious task unless you are well prepared. Apps like Zophop save our day and make your commute so much easier and more convenient. Being available in 15 cities, it will provide you information on Local trains, metro, buses. You can also book an Uber from the app.

  • Tourism: To make sure you cover all the important tourist destinations, downloading apps like TripAdvisor come handy for planning your travel.
  • The apps are easy to use and all handy, providing all necessary support and information for quick reference so that you can have a hassle-free holiday.

Top 34 global technology and securities firms, led by Microsoft and Facebook, have signed a “Cyber security Tech Accord” to defend people from malicious attacks by cyber criminals and nation-states.

The watershed agreement will prevent them help governments launch cyber attacks against innocent citizens and enterprises. It will also protect against tampering or exploitation of their products and services through every stage of technology development, design and distribution.

“The devastating attacks from the past year demonstrate that cyber security is not just about what any single company can do but also about what we can all do together,” Microsoft President Brad Smith said in a statement on Tuesday.

The “Cybersecurity Tech Accord” is a public commitment among 34 global companies to protect and empower civilians online and to improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace.

“This tech sector accord will help us take a principled path towards more effective steps to work together and defend customers around the world,” added Smith who has been arguing for a “digital Geneva Convention” for years.

The companies made commitments in four areas — stronger defence, no offence, capacity building and collective action.

“The companies will do more to empower developers and the people and businesses that use their technology, helping them improve their capacity for protecting themselves,” said cybertechaccord.org.

This may include joint work on new security practices and new features the companies can deploy in their individual products and services.

The Tech Accord remains open to consideration of new private sector signatories, large or small and regardless of sector, who are trusted, have high cyber security standards and will adhere unreservedly to the Accord’s principles.

“The real world consequences of cyber threats have been repeatedly proven. As an industry, we must band together to fight cyber criminals and stop future attacks from causing even more damage,” said Kevin Simzer, Chief Operating Officer, Trend Micro.

The victims of cyber attacks are businesses and organisations of all sizes, with economic losses expected to reach $8 trillion by 2022.

The cyber attacks in the past have caused small businesses to shutter their doors, hospitals to delay surgeries and governments to halt services, among other disruptions and safety risks.

“The Tech Accord will help to protect the integrity of the one trillion connected devices we expect to see deployed within the next 20 years,” said Carolyn Herzog, General Counsel, Arm.
