Army Training Event


As Indian Army focuses on becoming a Network-Centric Force by 2017, the challenge of cyber-security will increase manifold. As more and more users from within the Army use IT equipment and software for both professional and personal purposes, the task would be to ensure highest level of cyber-safety while encouraging greater recourse to networked functioning. The Army has a vast IT network and a comprehensive cyber-security regime – the task ahead is to continuously review latest developments and solutions in the area of cyber-security. This would also be required to revamp training packages and user orientation programmes. Neeti Foundation has worked with government and industry on the vital requirements of cyber-security and would implement a half-day orientation module for Army as laid down below.
