Some time ago I wrote about of how India is a hacking mess, and although it seems like a catchy title good for a clickbait it has quite some truth in as it cyber attacks are gaining momentum in that country.
Such attacks are getting bigger and bigger all over the world end at the same time breaches are getting bigger and bigger. And India is no different think of Adhaar history.
When you combine a large population with a fast-growing economy and a strong will to be a big Cyber player in the world, then it's almost inevitable that you will take shortcuts.
Of course, you can do it the right way, but the right way means investing a lot of time in data privacy and information security analysis to deploy secure software or solutions.
Also, you should never forget the awareness of your coworkers and the end-users.
So when I'm reading about these significant investments, I'm glad that things are developing in India, but it reminds me of the many mistakes that many companies do.
You can compare India to one big corporation that is competing with other conversations to gain market share.
And when you compete like that, you tend to want to have the best or be the quickest in launching products.
If your business is IoT with no emphasis on security, you'll eventually have problems.
So the question is when those projects/centers will be created will they help to develop secure solutions or it will be a new mess?
In the long run, if you do not do security property, then it is inevitable that data will be exposed systems will be hacked.
And the worst part is that the most affected are not the companies or the government but the ordinary people.
Dear India, I hope this will not be the case.
