Speaking on the occasion Mrs. Sudha Murty, Chairperson, Infosys Foundation, said, “The CCITR is a project for the present and the future; aiming to build state of the art facilities to tackle cyber and forensic crimes in Karnataka. Infosys Foundation is proud to contribute to this project. Once operational, it will be a proud milestone for the CID and the DSCI to curb misuse and unethical use of technology to create distress and uneasiness for fellow beings.”
“Cyberspace has turned out to be the world’s largest ungoverned space demolishing all geographical boundaries. Crimes using cyberspace will be the biggest organised crime in the times to come. Law enforcement agencies need to proactively get equipped in terms of hardware, software and expertise to face this challenge. I express my sincere gratitude towards Infosys Foundation and Data Security Council of India (DSCI) for coming forward to help the Karnataka State Police in creating a specialized centre for improving the investigation and prosecution of Cybercrimes. This is an excellent example of public-private partnership,” said Mr. Praveen Sood IPS, Director General of Police, CID, Karnataka.
“DSCI continues its commitment to build the capacity of law enforcement in handling cybercrimes through our Cyber Forensics initiative. The Cybercrime investigation manuals developed by DSCI are acting as reference material for the police, prosecution and judiciary in handling cybercrimes. DSCI is pleased to partner with Infosys Foundation in scaling up the capacity building efforts and setting up the Centre for Cybercrime Investigation Training and Research at CID Headquarters which would enhance the investigation capabilities of Karnataka State Police,” said Ms. Rama Vedashree, CEO, Data Security Council of India.
