India and US Going to Launch Joint Cybercrime Portal

Indian police are focused on the requirements of cyber crime investigations and many issues and challenges faced by police forces in getting the required information, particularly from those having servers in the US.


Indian and American police have agreed to set up a new portal that would allow them to cooperate on cybercrime investigations, including hacking and social media network misuse.

This portal would be used to log and track cybercrimes and law enforcement related requests and issues

The US police officers said they too have been facing similar challenges and hoped that such a portal would be helpful for law enforcement agencies of both the countries. 

There have been several instances in the past when Indian security agencies faced difficulties in tracking down perpetrators of cyber crime.

Most of the prominent service providers like Hotmail, Google, Facebook, Twitter are based in the US and a general request takes anywhere between 15 and 80 days. Further there is no guarantee that the required information would be provided at all.

Indian police officers said, social media sites have resulted in communal violence in the country. Even in such important matters, the service providers have refused to remove content from their servers.
