Hours after the website of Antrix, Indian Space Research Organisation’s commercial arm, was hacked, cyber law expert Pawan Duggal on Sunday said that cyber security should become a national priority.

“This is not a normal hack. This has to be seen as a broader cyber war activities that are targeted against India..We have seen large number of attacks coming up on government websites. Who is behind this, we will have to wait and watch,” Duggal told ANI.

“This should be enough to wake us up from complacency, we need to quickly realize that cyber security has to be number one national priority. Unfortunately, that is not the case. India still does not have dedicated legislation on cyber security, we have a very weak cyber law,” he added.

Earlier in the day, the website of Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) commercial arm Antrix was hacked.

The PRO of ISRO confirmed the same and said that there is some problem with the homepage of the Antrix website.

Antrix Corporation Limited is the marketing arm of ISRO for promotion and commercialization of space products, technical consultancy services and transfer of technologies developed by ISRO.
