ew Delhi, Jul 12 (PTI) The Cabinet was today informed about the cyber security pact that aims to promote information exchange and technical collaboration between India and Bangladesh.

“The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has been apprised of the Memorandum of Understanding between India and Bangladesh on cyber security cooperation,” an official statement said.

The agreement was signed on April 8 between Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) and Bangladesh Government Computer Incident Response Team (BGD e-Gov CIRT).

Both the agencies will promote exchange of information on cyber attacks and security incidents, technology cooperation, exchange security policies and best practices and human resource development.

“The MoU between CERT-In and BGD e-Gov CIRT would be implemented through a duly set up Joint Committee on Cyber Security,” the statement said.

CERT-In is a national nodal agency under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology with the objective of securing Indian cyber space.
