The statistics of the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team i.e CERT-In are even more surprising. According to the team report, in the year 2018 between January and November, more than 15 thousands websites were hacked in just 11 months. At the same time, this figure also continues to increase over time. According to the Global Information Security Survey, cyber criminals targeted 22% of the people by phishing, while the number of crimes that hacked the system by sending malware accounted about 20% There are 13% cases where cyber attacks have been planned in a systematic way to damage a company system. In 2017 Petya ransomware attack on Jawaharlal Nehru Port is considered a similar attack. At the same time, agencies says that Chinese cyber criminals may also be behind this crime.
The age of criminals committing cyber crime presents a very worrying picture for any society. 90 percent of the total criminals committing cyber crime are under 35 years of age. According to experts, this may be the same time that, after doing a computer course, went to wrong path by not getting a job. However, these criminals have also been found to have professionals working in large companies.
According to an officer working in the cyber cell of Delhi Police, the system is very poor in dealing with these criminals. The Delhi Police, considered the smartest police in the country, also does not have competent cyber experts who are familiar with the changing technology of these criminals. Cyber cells have been created in every district in the name of cyber crime branch, but the officers working in them are not technically experts. The cops working in cyber cell do not have the facility of training in changing methods, due to which such criminals are not caught in most cases.
