It said Doval, in his keynote address, highlighted the digital revolution taking place in the country and the launch of a large number of digital services by the government.

He went on to say that cyber security remains the foundation of any successful digital transformation.

“Any threat in cyberspace directly impacts our social, economic and national security and therefore we need to safeguard our cyberspace,” the statement issued by the National Security Council Secretariat said.
