In a joint statement, UK’s Foreign Secretary William Hague and India’s External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid have announced their intentions to further enhance cooperation between the two countries on the cyber security front.
“Both India and the United Kingdom share the core principles of liberty, transparency, freedom of expression and the rule of law which apply in cyberspace,” the officials stated, cited by DNA India.
Their objective includes strengthening the collaboration between the academic and the private sector to develop synergy in research and development, and reducing the risks posed by cyber threats on a global level by enhancing international cooperation.
Both India and the UK are determined to tackle cybercrime and help each other in raising resilience against threats from cyberspace.
In October, India and Japan revealed their plans to expand collaboration in the cyber security sector.
