Under the rules issued by India’s Computer Emergency Response Team, known as CERT-In, firms and government agencies have to report incidents like hacks and data leaks within just six hours of learning of them.
The rules “will undermine incident investigation and response, including the deployment of defensive measures,” Venkatesh Krishnamoorthy, the India country manager of BSA | The Software Alliance, said in a statement.
