India far behind China in data security

India-China data security

data protecting

China and India have always considered each other competitors in the Internet world. China and India are the countries with the largest number of consumers in the world in terms of the internet market and the data confirms this. The huge population of both countries is responsible for this huge market because in countries with such a large population, the Internet has emerged as the solution to almost every problem. Whether it is shopping related to daily consumption or work like collecting electricity and phone bills, the Internet has a solution to every problem. When it comes to data, it is necessary to mention the Internet, because the Internet has transformed every human being into data or data in this world. According to 'We are Social' digital social and mobile report, Internet users in India say a lot.

An Indian uses the Internet on an average of five hours or four minutes on a computer or tablet. One hour 58 minutes on the Internet, two hours 31 minutes on social media, besides the average daily duration of their mobile Internet usage, is two hours 24 minutes which is continuously increasing. The deeper the data is drowned, the more it will be understood that China is more visionary than India and in many ways better. China's policy of not being dependent on any other country in the use of the The Internet gives it a different place in this matter than India. When Google and Facebook is in danger all over the world, China has these different social media platforms and Facebook, Twitter is completely banned. Although many times it is also seen as a monopoly on the media of the government, if it is seen in the context of data colonization, then China has strengthened its data security.

Data is the new gold

A colony is a country or region that is controlled by those coming from another country or by those who come from another country. The word colonization is derived from this word. Colonization is a process in which a centre of powers controls its surrounding terrain. The term data colonization came from the digital world. It can be understood as if you are in India and you are active on digital platforms within its geographical limits, but your data has gone beyond the geographical limits. You have no idea who is controlling your data. Your habits, food, routine are all within another geographical range. How your data is being used is completely out of your control. At this time your complete data can be obtained based on your search on Google search and other search engines. Companies also know where you have been, what you have searched for or what your preference is. The reason for this was that all your data used to go abroad from here. Indian law is not effective there and in such a case, the company which has your data, it depends on who should give your data.

Last year, a researcher was officially assigned by Cambridge Analytica to store data for Facebook users in the United States. People were selected through the 'Like' activity. Data of about 87 million people were collected. Google was also accused of stealing user data. Since these two big groups have been accused of stealing data, serious discussions about user data started at the international level. On being asked questions about the data in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that the user's data should be with them and they should also control the data. We can only act as an operator.

Benefits of this project

After the commencement of DNS i.e. Domain Name Service Project, your data will not reach foreign hands or any company. Many times while searching a website, you accidentally go to some porn or other site. Under the DNS project, you will be prevented from visiting the wrong website. Crores of people in the country go to the wrong site every moment. When this scheme becomes effective, it will also increase the speed of internet, because thousands of crores of people will avoid visiting the wrong site. This will increase internet speed. This officer said that in the same way important measures are being taken for government e-mail service NIC, such as double passwords, reporting of presence there when going abroad. No one else will be able to hack your email. Similarly, in the country too, the rules for government e-mail service, along with passwords, alerts on mobile, fingerprints, facial recognition are being introduced.
India has started taking steps lately, realizing the importance of correct figures. In this case, lessons can also be learned from China. China has always made its own choices, keeping a safe distance from the US and its electronic products. While all the countries of the world see America as a superpower, China itself is moving towards becoming the superpower. India is technically far behind. In such a situation, keeping in mind the importance of data, it now becomes the responsibility of the government to take adequate steps to keep the data of the people of the country in the country itself. As the government is also continuously making efforts towards going digital, it is also collecting data of people living in the country through 'Aadhaar' connecting and digitizing bank accounts and similar facilities. In such a situation, it becomes more important that people have confidence in the data. Like the people living in the geographical boundary of the country, their data also remain within the geographical boundary. Also, in the days to come, the digital world will grow further, in such a situation, preserving data is very important.

India will also have to complete its preparations

cyber security

It is believed that soon the central government is going to provide the facility of home server on the Internet. This facility will be provided through NIC ie National Informatics Center. Soon, a new platform will be made available for this as a public domain name service. For those using the Internet, it will be more secure and reliable than the current system. With this, no company in the world, including Google and Amazon, will be able to find out which website you have visited or from which e-platform and what purchase has been made. Now she could get this big data with the help of Google and other international information technology companies and expand her business accordingly. In this project, the provision will be made to prevent the Internet from visiting unnecessary or unnecessary websites. This will also increase internet speed. A unified messaging service will also be launched by NIC. Under this, the country's government e-mail services will be made safer and stronger than ever so that there will be no breach of any kind. Be aware that the platform through which most government e-mails are made in the country is not controlled by India. All this work will be done from the server centres of the backend or NIC. In such a situation, the common internet user will not have to do anything for this.

Everyone is aware of the popularity of Facebook and Twitter in India. The popularity of social media in India has increased a lot these days due to the accessibility of smartphones and the ease of data accessed through the Internet. According to a report by Statista, Facebook will have only 26.2 million subscribers in India in the year 2020 and Twitter remains the second hub of politics in India. A large number of politicians have made their presence known on Twitter. And not only politicians, all the big stars and ordinary citizens also use Twitter very much and YouTube has become a source of income for many people. But while using it, one can hardly remember that these social media platforms do not belong to India. Their servers are in the US, far beyond the geographical boundary of India. That is, the day all these platforms stop giving facilities in India, all our data will have gone far beyond our reach. If you look at this situation in the context of China, then China has kept its data completely safe. China developed its own social media. We chat is China's most popular app. It can be called China's Facebook, Twitter, Google News, Tinder and Pinterest. Recent figures say that the number of users of this app has crossed the one billion mark.

China also has its own Twitter. The micro-blogging platform called 'Saina Vibo' is used by about 446 million consumers every month and around 11.6 crore people use this website every day. China also has its own YouTube. The number of monthly subscribers of the 'Yoku Toodoo' app is around 58 crores. However, after the introduction of new social media platforms, the popularity of this app declined significantly. China has its own social media platform of all kinds. A search engine like Google could not make its place in China. China has its own search engine named 'Baidu Tiba'. As of February 2017, it has about 66.5 million subscribers every month. About 14.8 crore consumers use it every day.

Apart from these, China also has many other apps which people are using for their daily work there. If now China also closes these platforms in future, then its data is completely safe. The Chinese government is fully confident about the data of its citizens. At the same time, India's technical dependency has jeopardized the data of its country's citizens. The data of the people here have already gone far beyond the border of India and no plan is prepared for it to be safe or not to be misused in future. Ensuring privacy and security has been in the news ever since Facebook and Google was accused of stealing data. Last year, the leadership of the European Union fully implemented the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and thus set a milestone in the direction of data protection laws in the European Union (EU).
