Cyber Security

APTS is the nodal agency for Cyber Security-related activities in Andhra Pradesh that has taken the lead to build cyber security infrastructure and strengthening the capabilities of the State in dealing with adversaries. In tune with the increasing scope of cyber security in the IT-driven Governance, APTS continually provides expert advice, guidance and training to Government Departments and entities.

APTS is pivotal in the State’s Cyber Security strategy and is tasked with implementing the Andhra Pradesh Government’s Cyber Security policy as defined in the G.O.Ms.No. 2, dated 01.03.2017 of ITE&C (Infrastructure) department.

The State Cyber Security strategy defines four major focus areas, namely,

      i. Securing the Government Cyber Space, and Protection of Critical Information Infrastructure,
      ii. Capacity Building
      iii. Strengthening the Law Enforcement Agencies, and
      iv. Promotions
         Securing Government Cyber Space:

     As an integral part of Securing Government Cyber Space, APTS has:

  • • Designed, deployed and operationalised the country’s first world-class Cyber Security Operations Center, (AP CSOC).

  • Formulated a customized Cyber Security Framework, which is based on globally accepted foundation of standards and procedures.

  • Created an Audit framework, institutionalised training of identified Government personnel in conducting cyber audits, including Vulnerability Assessments & Penetration Testing (VAPT), and empanelled external third-party auditors.

Capacity building:

APTS has also taken major strides in capacity-building. It has formulated an integrated capacity-building roadmap that will help the State in training Students, Professionals, Government Employees and Law Enforcement Officers. APTS further identified industry recognised Certification institutes, OEMs, software majors and other training entities and successfully drafted co-partnering agreements with them as part of this initiative.

Strengthening law enforcement agencies:

APTS has partnered with C-DAC and National Digital Crime Resource and Training Centre, (NDCRTC), of the Sardar Vallabbhai Patel National Police Academy to train State Police Officers in the cyber crime investigative techniques.

Promotions:

Aimed at promoting IT start-ups, established industry majors and technology companies, APTS drafted a blueprint that envisages making the State the go-to destination for cyber security players to either start operations in the State, hire cyber security professionals and/or partner with the State in inviting new clients to its state-of-the-art AP-CSOC.
