In response to the fact that more than 800 government websites have been hacked in the last four years, the New Delhi government is testing and installing a secure government network for internal communication.

The Secure and Dedicated Communication Network (SDCN) is specifically tailored for intra-government communication, which will protect the information on more than 5,000 secured phones. While the project began as one central to New Delhi, communications and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has announced an expansion that will include more than 20,000 users across the entire country.

As personal devices are equipped with better storage and memory features, it's becoming increasingly important for organizations, businesses and governments to protect themselves against threats from cybercriminals.
