not be fought in the open, they'll be fought over the information & telecom
networks, and we should be ready for such kinds of cyber war." He further
stated that, "India has taken the first step in the direction with cyber laws in
place, but the need of the hour is to have new methodologies that ensure a
faster dispensation of justice."

In his keynote address Dr. Seth said that in order to ensure high network
security, one has to focus on preventive measures; detection & monitoring
of intrusion of networks and information about when and how the breach of
networks took place.
