‘India sees 375 cyberattacks everyday’

Referring to China as a major ‘challenge’ from a cybersecurity perspective for India, National Cyber Security Coordinator Lt. Gen. (retd.) Rajesh Pant on Monday said cyberattacks have gone up multifold in the current environment.

“In such unprecedented times, you mentioned two Cs — the challenge of corona and challenge of cyber. Actually, at the perch which I sit, there are 3 Cs. The third ‘C’ of course is on our northern border, which is another challenge that we are facing,” Mr. Pant said at an event organised by HDFC Bank.

“There are 4 lakh malware, we find every day. 375 cyberattacks take place,” he added.
