CYBERSECURITY AND TECH EXPECTATIONS FROM BUDGET 2018


PAVAN DUGGAL
ADVOCATE, SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
HEAD, PAVAN DUGGAL ASSOCIATES, ADVOCATES
PRESIDENT, CYBERLAWS.NET


India today, has become ripe as a nation to come up with dedicated allocations of budget on cybersecurity. Earlier, cybersecurity was never given such an importance in the budget but owing to the historical events that have taken place in India, post demonetization, specific allocations on cybersecurity budgets is a sine qua non if any actions are to be taken against the massively increasing cybersecurity breaches. Not just specific allocations, but spending heads within different categories of cybersecurity spendings in the budget need to be allocated, so that there is more clarity on the appropriate financial support and various capacity building measures in this direction.

The 10% figure of allocation to cybersecurity in the entire IT Budget is extremely meagre. India is a different ballgame altogether, and if it has to become a digitally empowered nation and a global IT superpower that it aims to be, then there needs to be a bigger percentage figure allocated to cybersecurity, of the total IT Budget in order to be able to create a mechanism that will survive the growing attacks by state and non-state actors on the Indian Critical Information infrastructure. The need for more spending in India on cybersecurity is higher than the global average because of India’s high aspirations and hopes in the Digital India program. Cybersecurity is the foundation fulcrum and if that is not adequately addressed, the entire Digital India Program may be prejudicially impacted.

India needs adopt a ‘leapfrogging method’ rather than a traditional one. With emerging technologies like IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), Blockchains etc., spending needs to be done in the said emerging sectors, both the corporate and government level. By insisting on government departments on having CISOs in place, India can instantaneously put focus on the significance of cybersecurity.

A hybrid approach needs to be taken by keeping in mind the existing technologies as well as putting focus on new technologies. As a growing digital power, India cannot exclude concentration on newly emerging technologies like IoT, blockchain and AI, as they are more critical and can help in becoming catalysts to further India’s growth.

फैशन शो के माध्यम से "विदेशी छोडो-देसी अपनाओ" का दिया सन्देश

 
दिल्ली में पीएफटीआई के छात्रों द्वारा एक फैशन शो का आयोजन किया गया, इस कार्यक्रम का आयोजन समाज में फैली कुरीतियां, अंधविश्वास व विदेशी छोडो देसी अपनाओ को उजागर कर उनका समाधान करना था, छात्रों ने बड़ी ही ख़ूबसूरती से कार्यक्रम को अंजाम दिया और मंच पर चार चाँद लगाए, फैशन शो में भारतीय संस्कृति साफ़ साफ़ झलक रही थी मानो ज़मीन पर स्वर्ग की अप्सराएं उतर आयी हो, फैशन शो में विजयी रहे: लड़कों में निखिल प्रथम स्थान पर, हिमांशु दूसरे स्थान पर और रॉकी तीसरे स्थान पर रहे, वहीं लड़कियों में सुरभि प्रथम स्थान पर, अलीशा दूसरे स्थान पर और कनिका तीसरे स्थान पर रही. फैशन शो को कोरियोग्राफ किया था कोरियोग्राफर रौनक चंचल ने, कार्यक्रम में मुख्य अतिथि की भूमिका सीनियर जर्नलिस्ट श्री दयानन्द वत्स जी व फिल्म निर्माता-निर्देशक अजय शास्त्री जी और जर्नलिस्ट शिवानी जलोटा ने निभाई. कार्यक्रम बहुत ही मनमोहक और संदेशात्मक रहा. कार्यक्रम के आयोजक थे डीके भरद्वाज और कार्यक्रम को प्रस्तुत किया था पदार्पण फिल्म एंड टीवी इंस्टिट्यूट ने.

कार्यक्रम में छात्रों के अभिभावक अपने बच्चों को रैंप पर चलते देख बहुत ही उत्साहित नजर आ रहे थे प्रत्येक परफ़ॉर्मर के लिए हाल में तांलिया गूँज उठती थी. कार्यक्रम इतना जबरदस्त था कि हर कोई एन्जॉय कर रहा था.
कार्यक्रम के मुख्य अतिथि जर्नलिस्ट दयानन्द वत्स जी ने बच्चों को पत्रकारिता के बारे में जागरूक किया, वत्स जी पत्रकारिता में लगभग 35 वर्षों से कार्यरत है, वहीं फिल्म निर्माता-निर्देशक अजय शास्त्री जी ने कहा कि ग्लैमर से भरी इस दुनिया में पश्चिमी सभ्यता हम पर हावी होती जा रही है और हम अपनी सभ्यता को भूलते जा रहे है, वहां पर अपनी सभ्यता को मंच पर दर्शाना बहुत ही कठिन होता है क्योंकि आजकल हर कोई पश्चिमी सभ्यता में लिप्त होता जा रहा है. ऐसे माहौल में अपनी सभ्यता को मंच के माध्यम से देश और दुनिया के कोने-कोने तक पहुंचना बहुत ही साहस भरा कार्य है जिसके लिए दीपक भारद्वाज बधाई के पात्र है क्योंकि इन्होने इस तरह का चैलेंज स्वीकार करके इसको अंजाम देने में लगे है.

पीएफटीआई के डायरेक्टर दीपक भरद्वाज का भी ये ही मानना है कि भले ही हमारा इंस्टिट्यूट फ़िल्मी है मगर हम अपने बच्चों को अपनी सभ्यता व संस्कृति के बारे में नहीं बताएंगे तो उनको कैसे पता चलेगा ? हमारे बच्चे तो जो आज देख रहे है वो तो वैसा ही कर रहे है, लेकिन जब हमारे बच्चे विदेशी लोगो को हमारी सभ्यता में लिप्त देखते है तो उनके मन में ये सवाल आता है कि जब हमारी सभ्यता इतनी अच्छी है कि विदेशी लोग भी हमारी सभ्यता को अपना रहे है तो हम क्यों छोड़ते जा रहे है अपनी सभ्यता को ? हम क्यों अपना रहे है पश्चिमी सभ्यता को ? इन्ही कुछ सवालों को दिमाग में रखकर इस कार्यक्रम का आयोजन किया गया था जो आप सभी के आशीर्वाद से सफल रहा.इस मौके पर जर्नलिस्ट अजित के साथ बच्चों के अभिभावक भी मौजूद रहे।

Importance of Motivation to lead a successful life

Geeta

Motivation is the characteristic that helps you achieve your goal. It is the drive that pushes you to work hard and reach whatever it is that you are after. It is the energy that gives you the strength to get up and keep going - even when things are not going your way.

Motivation can be intrinsic or extrinsic (internal and external) - With extrinsic motivation, you are motivated by rewards from an external source - you will be inspired by the recognition that you will get from external sources. Intrinsic motivation is something internal - you are motivated to reach your goal for your own internal benefits - Example - reading a book so that you can get the grade you are after versus reading a book so that you can learn something.

Intrinsic motivation is better than extrinsic motivation. But for many finding intrinsic motivation is not easy - it has to come from inside out. But once you get it, intrinsic motivation is much more powerful than the extrinsic.


Positive Motivation is where the focus is on what you want to achieve. You know where you're going. It is the result of positive thinking and will cause a sustained progress towards your goal. Holding the image of your goal in your thoughts will attract the inspiration needed to get you there. Its effect is strong and consistent and the results achieved are prolonged and steady.

Negative Motivation can best be described as wanting to get away from an existing condition. A good example is someone that has grown up in poverty and will do anything to not fall into it again. This is a strong motivation and can be an effective "Kick Start" but the results it achieves are markedly different from those of Positive Motivation. The effect can often be likened to a roller coaster ride. A classic example is the countless millionaires who make their fortunes and lose them time and time again. This type of motivation lacks the sustained results that come from Positive Motivation.

Self-motivation is a continuing process and the only way we become better and stronger is to create a few mistakes along the way and also face a few setbacks. In essence, you must take a specific sum of risk because it is the fantastic occasions and the bad that forces us to a better person.

The thing with us Personal Development types is, we're always talking about creating our best life.
We know that success is represented by different things for different people, but society teaches us that success is typically about money, position, attractiveness, power and influence There is are actually three effective ways on how you can easily motivate yourself and get things done easily.

First thing to remember, it is important to stay focused. Keep focused not on your things that you are facing with, but focus on the reward of that task once it has already been completed. Now, wouldn't that be much better if we know there is something waiting for us after completing that task? That is a pretty good motivation to think of. Keep your attention on your work and on your work alone - through this it will further help you to motivate yourself in completing the work rather than saving it for later.

Secondly, make sure that it is clear to you why you wanted to finish those things done. Preserve a clear vision of what you want. Visualize your wanted output and keep that in mind not until you are not yet done with the work. It is important that you are clear with the reason and you will simply get the motivation that you need.

And lastly, establish a daily habit in completing the things that needs to be done. Do the important tasks during a particular time every day. Make sure that you would only do important tasks during that time that you have set. Discipline yourself to follow to your own schedule, as motivation itself would always come with self-discipline below are great self motivation tips that are sure to help you become more active and productive every day.

Tips for Motivation
· Know what you want to do and what you want to achieve, be it a long-term or a short-term goal. Make sure they are achievable. Write them down and post it on your wall where you can see it every morning. Make it a habit to read them out loud. Visualize them and share them with your friends.
· Get yourself an accountability partner / coach.
· Share your dreams, plans and goals with your coach, create a realistic action plan and then get busy.
· Create a to-do list and do the stuff you've been avoiding, first.
· Consciously avoid making excuses.
When you feel an excuse climbing up onto your tongue... give yourself an uppercut.
· Have something to look forward to when you wake up each morning. Think of the happy and good things that are going to happen on that day. Doing this will surely set your mood and mindset for the rest of the day.
· Discover the best way to motivate yourself. Different people have different personalities and preferences. You just have to experiment and find out what gets you into action. You can get out and breathe some fresh air. You can play your favourite music as you do your early morning routine. You can think of a person that inspires you the most or probably a movie you have seen.
· Think less, do more.
Thinking and planning is great... but we should not over-think.
· Before going to bed, think of the great things that happened during the day. Never ponder on bad things as these will only keep you awake the whole night. Good sleep leads to good outlook the following morning. It will also keep you from waking up in a bad mood.
· Stop looking for easy and start doing effective.
· Visualize the result once the job is done. Just imagine the wonderful feeling you will have once your goals are achieved. Push yourself harder and focus on the positive results of what you are trying to reach. Nothing can beat the feeling of pride, satisfaction, and relief

Remember... if nothing changes (attitudes, decisions, behaviours), nothing changes (reality).
