Governments and other institutions are moving towards e-Governance to improve convenience, reduce time, and improve transparency in delivering services to businesses and citizens – which expects high standards of services, instant access to information, efficient transactions and support, whenever and wherever they need it.


This brings the issues of information and systems security such as architecture, standards and technology to the forefront resulted from the unprecedented gap between the pace of technological change and the inevitably glacial pace of policy and law making. In any good system of governance should be resilient to attacks by frauds, inadvertent virus, a variety of motivated cyber crimes through unauthorised access and even to a nation sponsored cyber war and in the scenarios of disaster and warfare.


In a networked society these kinds of threats have a potential to cripple a Government. Security of information & information assets is becoming a major area of concern . With every new application, newer vulnerabilities crop up, posing immense challenges to those who are mandated to protect the IT assets


Many in the industry and critical infrastructure organizations have come to recognize that their continued ability to gain citizens confidence will depend on improved software development, systems engineering practices and the adoption of strengthened security models and best practices. These include the Data Centre Security ,Use Firewalls, Web-site Security, Anti-virus tools ,Anti-phishing tools,Physical Office Security, Restricted Accessibility, Regular checks & reviews, Secured Working Processes, Planning long-term solutions
