‘Response to Cyber Crime Complaints Slow’

Google, Yahoo, and Facebook took more than 48 hours to respond to cyber crime complaints as none of these search engines and social networking sites had their nodal officers appointed in India, say cyber crime experts who participated in the National Cyber Safety and Security Standards Summit ‘ 14.

The Additional Director – General, National Cyber Safety and Security Standards, Dr. S. Amar Prasad Reddy said it was difficult or almost impossible to sort out the details of criminals in most of the cyber crime cases as the cyber crime police had to contact centres of all the popular search engines and social media sites outside the country for help. “Even before the objectionable content is taken down, damage could already be done to the victim as lakhs of people are active on these sites and chances are that certain people have saved it to their personal devices,” he added.

Around 18 State Government representatives, eight High Court Judges and Police representatives from various states participated.
