Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in a follow up action to the Budget announcement has constituted the ‘Kayakulp’ Council and has appointed former Tata Group chairman, Ratan Tata to head its council.

The primary aim of this council is to recommend changes, innovative methods and new practices for the improvement, betterment and transformation of the ailing Organization of Railways in India.

Prabhu is looking for innovative suggestions from these committees. “It will be easier for him to implement these ideas if they come as suggestions. If they come from within the railways, they are bound to get stuck in bureaucratic processes,” an official said.

The Council is likely to be a standing committee and would interact with all its stakeholders. It would initially have Shiv Gopal Mishra, General Secretary of All Indian Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) and Dr. M. Raghavaiah, General Secretary, National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), the two recognized federations representing the railway employees as members.

Suresh Prabhu in the budget speech had said –“Every dynamic and thriving organization needs to innovate and re-invent its practices. In accordance with the vision of Prime Minister for Innovation, Technology Development and Manufacturing, the Indian Railways intend to set up an innovation council called “Kayakalp” for the purpose of business re-engineering and introducing a spirit of innovative in Railways.”

The setting up of this committee with immediate effect is the fulfillment of Prabhu’s promise as stated in his Railways Budget speech.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic, as millions of employees working from home became a prime target for cybercriminals. A large majority (83 per cent) of IT teams in India said the number of phishing emails targeting their employees increased during 2020, according to a report by UK-based cybersecurity firm Sophos on Monday.

"It can be tempting for organisations to see phishing attacks as a relatively low-level threat, but that underestimates their power. Phishing is often the first step in a complex, multi-stage attack. According to Sophos Rapid Response, attackers frequently use phishing emails to trick users into installing malware or sharing credentials that provide access to the corporate network," Sophos' Principal Research Scientist, Chester Wisniewski said in a statement. The findings also reveal that there is a lack of common understanding about the definition of phishing. For instance, 67 per cent of IT teams in India associate phishing with emails that falsely claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and which are usually combined with a threat or request for information.
