National Security Day was observed at RICO's campus in Sitapura of Jaipur in which the members of the Sitapura Industries Association took part. The function was inaugurated by the State Minister of Labour Mangilal Garasia in which the current challenges of security were highlighted.
Each year, on March 4, Rashtiya Suraksh Diwas (RSD) or National Security Day is celebrated in India. Currently, many terrorist groups inside and outside of the country are posing the biggest threat to the security of the nation. RSD is dedicated to our security forces and their contribution and service to the nation.
Government agencies deem that main threats to national security are terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the neighboring countries, low intensity conflicts within and on the borders, cyber security, and recent threats to the security of our sea-lanes.
According to security expert Shivshankar Menon, in the last few years, the central government has made a beginning in India to put in place a series of measures to enhance the cyber security. “What we need is the coordination of national effort across the private and public sectors, new ways of organising ourselves, and new habits of working. We are now working on a national cyber security architecture which will enable us as a nation to step up security in this important new domain," he added.
