BSA | The Software Alliance along with several other technology policy and business advocacy organizations have raised concerns over the Cert-In’s directives highlighting how the rules put people’s privacy at risk.
The directive of the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (Cert-In) on reporting a cybersecurity incident within six hours from being aware of it and the lack of clarity on what constitutes a severe or a large-scale incident among other things could potentially “undermine incident investigation and response, including the deployment of defensive measures”, software policy group BSA has said.
