Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said that cyber crimes pose a challenge to traditional policing and called upon police personnel to enhance their skills to tackle threats posed from the cyber world.

“If we have to build public trust in a digital world, then we will have to bear zero tolerance towards cyber crime,” he said after inaugurating the Cyber Prevention, Awareness and Detection Centre (CyPAD) of Delhi Police and the National Cyber Forensic Lab of the Home Ministry.

Home Minister said in this era of internet and computers, there exists an aspect of cyber crime whether it is cyber cheating or fraud, women harassment or terror recruitment which needs to be strongly addressed.

“Internet is a platform not only aiding the evolution of social media but also crucial to online banking, shopping and remotely operated systems in industry. We have to develop institutional mechanisms for undertaking timely assessment to challenges in cyber space and securing it for the common man,” he said.

He said the ministry has initiated several steps in the last more than four years to deal with cyber crimes including setting up of an Inter-Ministerial Committee on Phone Frauds.

“For effectively tackling challenges to cyber space, we need an institutional mechanism at the national level involving the private sector also and coordination at the national and international levels,” he said.

Rajnath Singh said the setting up of the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (i-4C) is a step towards its implementation.

He said the CyPAD will deal with crypto-currency frauds and international tech-supported frauds.
