Lessons from critical cyber security incidents

By Dr. Muktesh Chander, IPS (Retd.), Ex. DGP Goa, Ex. Special Commissioner Delhi Police, Ex Centre Director National Critical Information Infrastructure Centre, Chevening Cyber Security Fellow, UK Ransomware infection in AIIMS server as well as its backup server is a serious matter and for many days, the systems could not be restored seriously affecting the digital patient care services of the hospital. At this preliminary stage it is not possible to say who is behind the cyber-attack on AIIMS servers. Since it is an act of introduction of computer contaminant leading to harm to persons, a criminal case of cyber terrorism under section 66F of Information Technology Act and other sections of IPC has been registered by police.In a ransomware attack, the attacker encrypts the files in a computer and demands a ransom in the form of crypto currency, to provide key to decrypt the locked files. Such attacks on computers have been happening all over the world and this is one of the most serious threats the cyber world is facing today. In 2017, National Health Services of UK, were crippled for almost 15 days by “WannaCry” ransomware attack. In the same year global shipping giant Maersk faced similar attack in which more than 45000 of its computers and 4000 servers were infected worldwide crippling the entire operation of the company. The company suffered a loss of about $300 million. Some of their computers in JLNPT in India were also infected.It was never a question that ransomware attack, on important Indian IT systems, would happen or not. The real question was when and where. In the year 2021, Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) handled 1402809 cyber incidents of various kinds, registering a rise of over 21% from the previous year. India reported 52,974 cases of cybercrime in 2021 with an increase of over 5 per cent from previous year. Ransomware cases were also reported but on a low scale. The inevitable was bound to happen sooner or later. During the second wave of Covid 19 spread, we had already seen several countries facing serious crisis before the wave hit India. Taking lessons from the happenings around the world, we had prepared ourselves very well to handle the second wave.Did we learn similar lessons by the global ransomware incidents in the last few years? AIIMS incident has revealed that much more needs to be done before we can answer this question in affirmative. The National Cyber Security Policy was released in 2013. A lot has changed in the cyber world in these 9 years and it is time for us to move on from policy to strategy. A well-defined and articulated cyber security strategy for next 5 years, with provisions for sufficient financial commitment to achieve quantifiable and tangible outputs and goals, is the need of the hour. The strategy must have components related to defending our cyber space, deterring the cyber adversary and developing cyber security products for our use as well as export. In recent past several measures such as creation of Computer Emergency Response Team, National Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Centre, Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre, National Cyber Security Coordinator etc. have strengthened the cyber security framework of India.As a result, from a rank of 43rd position in 2017, in Global Cyber Security Index prepared by ITU, India has gained a very respectful 10th position in 2020. But let us not forget “Stuxnet”, the first cyber weapon deployed against critical infrastructure of a nation, first cyber war of sort faced by Estonia and the parallel cyber war going on between Russia and Ukraine since the war started between them. After land, sea, air and space, cyber has emerged as fifth domain of warfare and our cyber defence must be ready to face any challenge on this front too. The conventional model of deterrence, which emerged during cold war and has continued in the nuclear era, is taking shape in cyberspace also. The concept of cyber deterrence depends the strategy of incorporating both the ability to retaliate and the will to retaliate against the cyber adversary.The much-awaited Digital Personal Data Security Bill is likely to be passed in the budget session of the Parliament next year, with the provision of financial penalties up to Rs.500 crores in case of breach of personal digital data. The companies and organisations dealing with such data will have to take serious measures to strength their cyber security posture. Every organisation, dependent on ICT systems, must now take cyber security as a board level activity to show the top management’s commitment towards it and provide sufficient resources and budgetary support for cyber security function. They must have a chief information security officer or a data protection officer, if dealing with digital personal data. It is now well known that technology alone cannot fight the cyber challenges and the man behind the machine is equally important. Therefore, in order to create an organisation-wide culture of cyber safety, training and awareness in cyber hygiene in the entire organisation is important. The organisations must also be ready to brace a cyber security disaster by following risk management approach. For this a proper incident response and business continuity plan will be required to minimise losses and damage and also to make the organisation resilient.Every cyber security breach incident has lessons to be learnt. International ATM Heist, involving a loss of $45 million happened with banks of UAE and Oman in 2012 followed by Japan ATM heist in 2016. There was enough time to learn from these incidents and strengthen cyber security in banks, but unfortunately in 2018 a similar crime took place with Cosmos Bank in Pune, involving Rs. 94 crores. We need to follow a more proactive approach in cyber security.The critical information infrastructure, both in private and government sectors such as those in energy, transportation, banking & finance telecommunication, defence, space, law enforcement, security & intelligence, public health etc., must have robust cyber security plan, since any incapacitation in them would cause a debilitating impact on national security, governance, economy of our country. At the launch of Digital India Week in 2015 our honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had dreamed of a Digital India, where cyber security becomes an integral part of our national security. Every individual, organisation, company and government machinery in India must work continuously to realise this dream.

26-year-old Abhilasha Barak from Haryana becomes Indian Army’s first woman combat aviator

Captain Abhilasha Barak graduated at a ceremony held at the Combat Army Aviation Training School in Nashik. D G of Army Aviation, A K Suri, was the chief guest at the event. Having grown up in military Cantonments across the country, joining the forces was a natural career choice for Captain Abhilasha Barak. On Wednesday, the 26-year-old from Haryana became the first woman combat aviator of the Indian Army. Captain Abhilasha Barak graduated at a ceremony held at the Combat Army Aviation Training School in Nashik. D G of Army Aviation, A K Suri, was the chief guest at the event. Captain Barak is an alumnus of The Lawrence School, Sanawar. She completed her graduation in B Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Delhi Technological University in 2016 and was placed at Deloitte, USA. In 2018, she was commissioned into the Indian Army from the Officers Training Academy, Chennai. During her attachment with Corps of Army Air Defence, she was selected as a Contingent Commander for Presentation of Colours to Army Air Defence by President Ram Nath Kovind. She attained ‘A’ grading in Army Air Defence Young officers course, 75.70 per cent in Air Traffic Management and Air Laws course and passed the promotional exam, Part B, in her first attempt.“After completing my training from Officers Training Academy, Chennai, in 2018, I opted for Army Aviation Corps. As I was filling the form, I knew I was eligible for only ground duty role but I ended up mentioning that I had qualified Pilot Aptitude Battery Test and computerised pilot selection system. Somewhere in my heart, I always knew that the day was not far away when Indian Army would start inducting women as combat pilots,” she said in the interview. After two years, when the induction of women as pilots was announced, it all came full circle for Captain Barak. “Not many people know this, but in 1987, during Operation Meghdoot, my father was leading a patrolling party from Amar Post to Bana Top Post (earlier Quaid Post). Owing to bad weather, he suffered from Cerebral Odema and was brought back to Amar Post, from where he was evacuated right in time. He owes his life to the Army Aviation Corps and hence, so do I,” according to excerpts of the interview. "While growing up in military Cantonments, and being surrounded by people in uniform, it always seemed like an ordinary affair. I never realised it (that it was different) until our family moved out of the military life, after my father’s retirement in 2011. The feeling only grew stronger after seeing my elder brother’s passing out parade at Indian Military Academy in 2013. That was the moment I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life," Captain Barak said in an in-house interview shared recently by the Indian Army.

  With an undying love for cricket as the game that unites DP-DCE-DTU across all batches and branches,we set off with a vision to bring our Alumni together yet again - albeit this time, with a mission to bring out the sports enthusiast in them. Covid-19 reservations playing a spoilsport to our reunion plans   “Nobody is bothered about an institution more than it’s alumni.” ” Mr. N.R. Narayana Murthy   Taking a step back, to highlight how the thought was conceptualised between the DCE-DTU University Cricket Teams of a decade (2010 to 2020). The rivalries were pre-existing, the toughest part was to gather 22 fit players on the field on a given day.   Phase 1 (Setting up the Stage & the Teams)   The theme was defined to enable a series of Cricket Tournaments to enable DP-DCE-DTU alumni come together & join the fun. DCE Kings (2015 Batch & below) & DCE Lions (2010 Batch & below) were the two University teams that were formed to kick-start the tournament’s Season 1.   The format was 20 overs each side & 2 Matches to be played for deciding the Ultimate Champion. The bidding was a closed one to shortlist the players for each team with a balance between the bat & the bowl. The date was formalised a few days before the event to be 27th February, 2021 to the surprise of the DCE Kings captain who had to board a flight from Mumbai a few days before to attend the match.   Post successful quarantine period of the King’s captain, his sinister plans were in place to get the Lions out of the tournament by hook or by crook. Few highlights of the Tournament were coming together of our Seasoned Entrepreneurs with Sports Enthusiasts to add the flavour of diversity & inclusivity in the overall structure. We had Amit Bhasin (DCE’10 & Co-founder of GoMechanic) & Harsh Vikram Singh (DTU’17 Ranji player from Bihar, Rajasthan Royals IPL bowling squad for Dubai) as the star power/glamor quotient of the tournament.   2 (The Mad Cacophony of Planning ~18 hrs to the Day)   The entire tournament was already building up in our heads, the 10,000+ Whatsapp texts getting exchanged to lay claim as the rightful heirs to the cup & how to organize the event. Everyone was of the opinion that ‘Done is much Better than Planned’ & were working towards getting the 1st leg of the journey started anyhow. Only till the time, our true Thalaiva arrived in the picture - Mr. Akhil Chowdhary (DCE’84, CEO Binary Semantics), who went on to change the scale of the event.   The focus was now on giving the event it’s due respect & standardizing the experience for the DCE-DTU alumni. The transformation began with a quick call with Akhil sir, where the fundamental principle was agreed upon - no matter how much time we are left with, we will organize it the best we can. GSTRobo was brought about in absolutely no time as the Title sponsor of the Cricket Championship & along came GoMechanic & Lal10 as the Co-sponsor & Gift sponsors (in just 30 mins & a phone call each). Little did we realise then, how the scale of the game was to change/ turnaround in less than half a day.   Frantic phone calls & follow-ups between the team & the Alumni event partners (Banners & Videography) were exchanged throughout the night. The designs were finalized, few errors went unnoticed, orders for mementos were placed till late in the night as the Guest of Honours accepted the invite. In the midst of all this, the Video partner suggested that we along with the HD cameras we get the drone to record the live match. The idea stuck with us as fevistick to the passport photo we used while filling the college enrolment forms. We were racing against time to arrange for every minute thing (from a Thumbnail to the flood lights).     Phase 3 (The Awakening)   For some it was just another Saturday - a day to snooze the alarms & stay put in the bed till late, for the DCE Lions & the DCE Kings it was the match day. Everyone was at the ground at 7:30 am where tea & snacks were served to kick-start the day. For the health conscious & younger DCE Kings, fruits were arranged for. The ground was still fresh from the morning dew & the pleasant Delhi winters receding with February   The ground was filled with laughter & memories as the alumni arrived with their signature charm. 1000’s of hugs later the coin was tossed & the fate of the two teams was being decided. Lions won the toss & opted to field, Kings were to bat on a surface which had some swing & a chilly nip in the air. The teams arrived together to sing the National Anthem & pay their humble respect & gratitude to the Indian soldiers & the martyrs.   The skipper of the DCE Kings - Ramakrishna who also led the DCE team in 2012-13, decided to open the innings with Abhinav (DTU’15). The trap was set, Lions claim to fame having acquired Harsh Vikram Singh, the Ranji player was handed over the ball in the 2nd over to take down the DCE Kings.   Few moments later, the scorecard read 1.1 overs 6 runs, 1 wicket - with great fielding efforts to break the budding partnership. Contrary to the hopes & expectations of an early breakthrough, the scorecard went ballistic with Abhinav & Vaibhav holding the innings together creating a masterpiece of a scorecard - 6 overs, 49/1. Powerplay gone, the batsmen still kept on piling runs by a heap with 8 overs 87/2 . With each boundaries and maximums being belted to the quality bowling attack of Lions, the awakening call was near (the avg. economy of Lions bowlers read in excess of 9 runs) & the towering score of 201/7 was put forward by the Kings (who were at ease having put a competitive total on board by now).   By this time, DCE’96 & Alumni Council Member Mr. Arun Aggarwal had arrived to witness the match in progress. The task set was a daunting one on the board but looking at the undying spirit of the Lions few would have imagined that the match was far from being over. The 1st wicket of Lions fell cheaply similar to the Kings score, however Lions’ ray of hope was vanishing as the chill in the air, wickets after wickets fell with not much movement on the scoreboard. Just then Palash had arrived on the crease with a blitzkrieg 53 of just 16 balls he made the seemingly impossible match a winning possibility. However, Kings had ominous plans getting Palash out at the ropes & by now they knew they had the match in their grip. By this time even Arun sir had realised the outcome as he wished us the best. The match was gone, with Kings winning by a comprehensive margin of 40 runs.   Phase 4 (Lunch & 2nd Match)   The lunch was called for as the players re-assembled, munching on the Pizzas & gulping the defeat with cold-drinks, the team planned for another strategy to outplay the Kings. While Kings were upbeat & confident of their win having dominated the Lions in the first match. The match resumed at 4 pm with the toss being won by Lions again who decided to bat first this time.The story remained the same with Kings flourishing by the ball this time taking Lion's wickets a plenty. The slow run-rate did little to boost the morale of the Lions & all were hoping for Palash to come on strike again. In style did he come & in his characteristic style he sent the bowlers hunting for the balls behind the boundary ropes.   As all good things come to an end, so did Palash’s innings to help Lions muster up a decent fighting total of 143/10 in 20 overs. Kings having scored 200+ in the previous innings knew it was a piece of cake for them. The pitch was turning, but wasn’t turning enough like Motera & the spinners of Lions were kept at bay, knowing the Lions penchant for scoring runs from glorious hits. The average economy of Lions’ bowlers remained unchanged at 9+, and so did the status of the match.   Kings won convincingly in 15.1 overs & the celebrations ensued till the time our Chief Guest of Honour - Mr. Akhil Chowdhary arrived. As is the typical journey of DCE’ites & DTU’ites the introduction being a must - all the players were lined up to introduce themselves & the work they do.   The presentation ceremony began in style with each player being presented a medal (the gold to Kings & the silver to the Lions). The trophies for top performers for the day was presented by the delegate of guests. Abhinav Jain was adjudged the Player of the Match for the first game and Kunal Negi (DTU’13) received the same for the final match. Abhinav was the performer of the day with 98 runs and 5 wickets in two matches. He also bagged the Best Batsman award, while Vikram Hooda (DTU’19) of the Kings was awarded the Best Bowler.   Phase 5 (Post Match Presentation Ceremony)   Finally it was time for awarding the winner’s trophy, for which the whole battle-like situation was created on the WhatsApp groups. It was presented to the captain of the Kings, Mr. Rama by the Chief Guest. Being the humble leader he is, he invited his teammates to celebrate the win and pose with the prize of their hard work.The moment was captured on the backdrop of a beautiful flood-lit ground by the well-trained camerapersons and the ever-buzzing drone.   It was the time to say goodbye to the day, but not before deciding that it was just the beginning with more exciting elements to be added to the future editions of this mega affair. Nikhil Jeph (DCE’12), the captain of DCE football team in 2011-12, was also part of the organizing committee and the success of this event has encouraged him to conduct a similar event with football players from DCE/DTU.   All of this was possible only because of the support of our distinguished alumni who guided us in our quest to bring our community closer to make this event a big hit. Special thanks to GSTrobo,Vaco Binary Semantics, GoMechanic, Binary Semantics, FleetRobo, DigitalEd, Pepperfry, Grorapid, Lal10, Proxy, CrownIt, & Channelplay.   With the hope we will meet up soon, we close the Season 1 of DCE-DTU Cricket Championship

Two attempts, and great post-college learning experiences later, here I am, at the peak of my journey.   DT: Ideally, how much time is required for preparation for the Civil Services Examination?
