Information security in India is not just a business requirement, but a legal requirement in India. Compliance with the Indian IT Act ensures that your organization’s IT infrastructure, systems, and processes are in line with the IT Act 2008 requirements.

According to the IT Act 2008, the executive responsible for IT (CEO/CRO/CIO/CFO) in an organization in India is responsible for any Cyber Security incident originating from the organization. Not implementing “Reasonable Security Practices” can lead this senior executive staff to even jail, not to mention the financial liabilities.

Why comply with IT Act 2008

IT Act 2008 focuses on the cyber security
The Head of the organization is directly responsible for ensuring legal compliance with the IT Act, just like any other legal requirements in India (Section 85, IT Act 2000)
Companies are required to ensure “Reasonable Security Practices” are implemented and “Due Diligence” is performed
Information Security is not only a business requirement but also a legal requirement
