With the world growing to be increasingly digital, there is simply no escape. For one to survive in this world, one has to get onto the digital bandwagon, from where there seems to be no escape. However, for all its boons, there is a duality to it that seems to counter it as well. While a digital world makes the world a small place, all that hyper-connectivity also threatens safety. In order to offer better online experiences to people, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology or MEITY has launched the Cyber Surakshit Bharat Programme.
