From across the border, a new cyber threat

Pakistan’s anti-India cyber activity must be viewed in the backdrop of its new Cyber Security Policy 2021, which seeks to position the country as an important participant in the global conversation on cyber security.

In recent years, India has strengthened its cyber security capabilities by creating institutions such as the Defence Cyber Agency and putting in place policy frameworks like the National Cyber Security Policy of 2013. 

 Besides the older and persistent threat of cross-border terrorism, Pakistan now poses another serious threat to India’s security interests — there have been multiple cyberattacks from Pakistan-based hacker groups targeting India’s critical infrastructure and government servers.
