David Cameron will strike a cybersecurity partnership with India aimed at protecting the personal data of millions of British households that is stored in Indian call-centers and data centers.
India will be Britain’s “trusted partner” over cybercrime and security, amid a growing threat from international criminals and states like China, the Prime Minister said.
Millions of British people have personal details including bank files and NHS files stored in India. Experts say many Indian IT systems are vulnerable to hacking. British ministers say the threat from people and organizations using internet-linked computers to steal data and disrupt networks is real and growing.
