National Security Database is a prestigious empanelment program awarded to credible & trustworthy Information security experts with proven skills to protect the National Critical Infrastructure & economy of the country.

Overview

The Need of National Security Database: 

India is known for its capability in Information technology. But it is also a fact that India is one of the top countries with highest rate of Cybercrime incidents and computer virus infections. This not only affects a lot of individuals but also the business and the Government, who are regular targets of coordinated hacking attacks.

Even as organizations strive to protect their sensitive information to defend from phishing attacks, data leakage, malware threats, email hacking, website defacements and other attacks, the Government is struggling to train the law enforcement about hacking, move towards secure e-governance for the common man and protect its national critical infrastructure from cyber-warfare and insider threats.

To address the security concerns at both the Industry and the Government, it is essential to seek assistance from Information technology and security experts. But can everyone handle sensitive information? 

To help India advance the physical and Cyber security of critical infrastructures or work on a responsible job in the corporate, it is necessary to have people who are not only competent but also with a high degree of trustworthiness and integrity.

This process involves examination of references, technical skills, criminal history, and even psychology assessment to generate a report for security clearance.

Obtaining a security clearance not only helps in gaining higher credibility but also makes it easier to both the Industry and the Government to identify professionals who can be trusted with protecting sensitive data.

National Security Database is a prestigious empanelment program awarded to credible & trustworthy Information security experts with proven skills to protect the National Critical Infrastructure & economy of the country.
