New Cyber Security Rule to Make Doing Business in India Tougher, say Global Tech Bodies
The Times of India, May 27, 2022.
11 international bodies having tech giants like Google, Facebook and HP as members said in a joint letter to the government that India's new directive which mandates reporting of cyberattack incidents within six hours and storing users' logs for 5 years will make it difficult for companies to do business in the country.
The international bodies have expressed concerned that the directive, as written, will have a detrimental impact on cyber security for organisations that operate in India, and create a disjointed approach to cyber security across jurisdictions, undermining the security posture of India and its allies in the Quad countries, Europe and beyond.
