National Cyber Security Coordinator’s office in partnership with DSCI has launched an online portal ‘TechSagar’ that will list and provide information on business and research entities from the IT industry, startups, academia and individual researchers.
DSCI said that as India aspires to become a ‘Trillion-Dollar Digital’ economy, the repository will facilitate new opportunities for businesses and academia to collaborate, connect and innovate.
“TechSagar is a consolidated and comprehensive repository of India’s cybertech capabilities which provides actionable insights about capabilities of the Indian industry, academia & research; across 25 technology areas like IoT, AI/ML, blockchain, cloud & virtualisation, robotics & automation, AR/VR, wireless & networking,” said DSCI in a statement.
“In order to combat the growing threat from cybercrime, there is an urgent need to collaborate and develop cyber technology capabilities in India. With the launch of TechSagar, we have sown the seed for startups to prosper in cybertech. This is a good example of government facilitating industry growth in a strategic domain,” said National Cyber Security Coordinator Rajesh Pant.
As of now, the repository features over 4000 entities from industry, academia and research including large enterprises and startups providing a country-level view of India’s cyber competencies.
“Cyber technology capabilities have become central to our national strategic outlook and there was an urgent need for developing TechSagar. Startups, enterprises, academia, researchers, and R&D institutes in the country need to synergise their efforts and work in tandem to make India a technology leader,” said DSCI CEO Rama Vedashree.
