India and Russia have stepped up their cyber security cooperation in the backdrop of cyber-attack on Kudankulam nuclear power plant built by global nuclear major Rosatom.
Deputy Chief of Mission of the Russian Embassy Roman Babushkin has said Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited has informed Russian authorities that the plant is safe and additional steps have been taken to enhance its security further. “The Russian authorities are working with Indian agencies to stop any further attacks,” he said.
The two sides have vibrant cyber security partnership.
On the BRICS summit in Brasilia, Babushkin said ways to deal with the challenge of terrorism will be a focus area, and referred to setting up of a number of working groups to deal with terror financing and transnational crimes.
He also said that issues like situation in Kashmir and Xinjiang in China are unlikely to figure in the deliberations at the summit. Read More
