NSD launch in Mumbai
By Bala Shah
The National Security Database will be launched on November 26 at the JW Marriott, Mumbai.
Jointly developed by the Government of India and ISAC, a non-profit scientific foundation, the National Security Database (NSD) was conceived after the horrific 2008 Mumbai attacks as a proactive action to identify the most credible and skilled Information Security professionals in India who work to protect the National Critical Infrastructure and cyber space of the country.
The keynote for NSD will be tentatively addressed by Mr. Sachin Pilot, Hon. Minister of State in the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. The Inaugural note will be addressed by Shri. Alok Vijayant, Director, NTRO (National Technical Research Organization), Government of India. The NTRO is India's sole Technical Intelligence (TECHINT) agency. The organization develops technology capabilities in data gathering and processing, cyber security, cryptology systems, strategic hardware and software development and strategic monitoring.
The event will be followed by ground breaking Information Security research presentations, notably the advanced malware for Apple products and Xbox Kinect Malware, both developed by Indian researchers.
