Telecom Security is a complex subject that includes compliance to mandated technical specifications, deployment of secure configurations, ensuring trusted supply chain management, engagement of security vetted personnel for critical functions besides day to day operations management for protecting customer communication taking place through the use of telecom networks.

Anshu Prakash, Secretary, Department of Telecommunications(DoT), Ministry of Communications and Chairman Digital Communications Commission, inaugurated an online certificate course on Network Security on the occasion of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. The Course was organised by the National Telecommunications Institute for Policy Research, Innovation and Training (NTIPRIT), the premier training institute of the Department of Telecommunications, Government of India. The 12-week course is designed to train and certify officers in network security. While the course is presently for DoT officers, it is proposed to be expanded to cover other officers of the government and gradually those in the private sector also.

While inaugurating the course through Video Conferencing, Anshu Prakash, brought out the importance of telecom network security as well as the need for end-users to safeguard their devices such as mobile phones, laptops and desktops. He pointed out this is now especially relevant in the context of the pandemic that has increased dependence on telecom networks and services in all aspects of daily life. Prakash congratulated NTIPRIT on the launch of this highly topically relevant certification course and extended best wishes on the occasion of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. Other senior officers from DoT HQ and NTIPRIT also spoke at the online event.
