CRITICAL INTERNET INFRASTRUCTURE
This generates warning and notifies the network operator to proactively protect the CII. In 2017, when the WannaCry Ransomware broke down, CPF’s setup detected target attempts. Organisations in Ranchi, Jharkhand were cautioned which helped them secure their networks and systems.
Considering that Internet is an enabler of Fundamental Rights which is used to exercise Freedom of speech and Expression, the shutdown is a hindrance in practice of same. Ever since a need for policy to regulate the shutdown has been in huge demand. CyberPeace Foundation is working to regulate the shut down through policy advocacy and wakefulness of the Government.
We at CPF staunchly believe that every citizen of the country should have the right to use the Internet and have a safe and peaceful digital presence and are thus, constantly working towards ensuring the same through our varied initiatives.
To build resilient and sound international arrangements and to foster research in the field of CyberSecurity, the CyberPeace Alliance is one of the first initiatives of its kind. The alliance comprises of scholars, academicians, service providers and all interested parties on the Internet. The members meet from time to time with specific agendas and through a formal process to float ideas and mature them into workable models, be it technology, business, policy, law, economics, development etc. As there may be many facets that need to be looked into, like Online Crimes, Internet Regulation, Compliance, Data Protection & Privacy etc, the alliance does not define narrow subjects for itself, and instead focuses through events, discussions and research on specific issues that need time to time addressing. The Alliance comprises of equal participation from all stakeholders on the Internet indicating that a business process will never be left unattended legally and a legal process will not mandate what technology cannot enforce. The alliance is an extension of our belief and an initiative that is aimed at bringing the world together to start talking about CyberPeace.
