Initiative by MHA Against Cyber Crime
The I4C scheme of MHA focuses on strengthening the capability of prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of cybercrimes. in a coordinated and comprehensive manner. The I4C is actively involved in developing a robust ecosystem for securing the cyber space, giving due emphasis on capacity building and public awareness, etc. Further, the National Cybercrime reporting Portal. which provides for a centralized mechanism of complaint reporting by citizens relating to cybercrime, has been operationalised by MHA in August, 2019. There is a special focus in the portal on cybercrimes against women and children and it allows the de-centralized dealing of each complaint by the Law Enforement Agencies (LEA) of the State/UT concerned.
The National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal is an initiative of Government of India to facilitate victims/complainants to report cyber crime complaints online. This portal caters to complaints pertaining to cyber crimes only with special focus on cyber crimes against women and children. Complaints reported on this portal are dealt by law enforcement agencies/ police based on the information available in the complaints.
The Twitter Handle @CyberDost is dedicated by MHA for updates & advisories at regular interval for prevention of cybercrimes.
