The recent ransomware attacks on AIIMS have once again raised the question as to how prepared is India for the cyber war. The experts say that there is a need to pre-meditate such attacks and remain prepared at all times.
New Delhi, Dec 09: Minister of State for IT Rajeev Chandrasekhar said on Thursday that the ransomware attacks on the servers of AIIMS Delhi were deliberate and targeted and the National Investigation Agency is probing the matter. I cannot comment as the NIA is probing it. It is pretty clear that it is a deliberate and targeted effort on AIIMS system , Chandrasekhar said on the sidelines of the CII Global Economic Policy Summit 2022.
On December 2, the minister had said that it is clearly a conspiracy and has been planned by forces that are pretty significant. It is a sophisticated ransomware attack, Chandrasekhar said.
