Cyber lab for Haryana Police
NASSCOM has set up an ultra modern cyber lab at the Haryana Police Academy in Madhuban. This facility will impart requisite knowledge and skills to police personnel in the field of cyber-crime investigation.

Chandigarh: With the cyber-crime on the rise and posing challenges for the conventional investigation machinery, the Haryana Police has set up a state-of-the-art cyber-lab at the Haryana Police Academy, Madhuban, to equip cops with technical knowhow to tackle cases involving the Internet and modern communication gadgets.

Haryana Director General of Police RS Dalal said, “An ultramodern cyber-lab has been set by the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), New Delhi for us. This lab will impart requisite knowledge and skills to our police personnel in the field of cyber-crime investigation and related areas like cyber security, awareness, prevention and deduction.”

A MoU was signed with NASSCOM in October 2009 to set up this cyber-lab. The state-of-the-art cyber-lab, which will be inaugurated by NASSCOM President Som Mittal on August 5, has 25 computers with latest software installed in them. These computers have small box called the thin client instead of CPUs, providing the twin benefits of greater leg space for the users and better administrative control for the coordinator.

 According to the Haryana Police, the first batch of training at the cyber-lab will commence from August 9.

“This venture will definitely usher in the era of modernisation of the state police. With NASSCOM taking this noble intiative for us, more new areas will open for cooperation between the police and the private sector. We have already started a dialogue with the two premier organisations in the field of IT, NASSCOM and the Data Security Council of India, New Delhi, to assist the Haryana Police in future,” he added.
