On May 11, every year, India celebrates the feats made in the science and technology community on the occasion of National Technology Day 2021. This day marks a great opportunity to appreciate and celebrate the achievements of Indian scientists, engineers and innovators who aided the country's growth and prosperity.
Amidst these turbulent times, technology has emerged as the lifeline of human ingenuity and has helped us unite while we brace this invisible enemy Covid-19. Technology has become the catalyst for the transformation of individuals and businesses alike, nurturing our future for the better.
As India evolves into a digital-first nation, it becomes even more important to develop a robust data management mechanism in this data-driven era. As data becomes the lifeline of organizations across the globe, it also gives rise to vectors like ransomware and other forms of cyberattacks.
This is an opportune time to strengthen our data management systems and infrastructure and build a secure data ecosystem that will ensure India's purpose-driven journey into a technologically advanced and secure nation.
For a fully digital vision, India needs to envisage a digitally empowered society — the country's strength lies in being a connected nation. We have to make sure that the technologies of today transform the future of India into a digitally connected equitable nation.
