Papers are invited from Cyber Patriot Task Force members for preparing India's national strategy for cyber security and for use of upcoming technologies like AI, Blockchain, Cognition, Quantum Computing etc. to key operational sectors as well as to national flagship programmes. The objective is to provide actionable input into policy, enable pilots wherever feasible and then help promote scaling. Thereafter, we would have a feedback, assessment and refinement cycle. Given our vision to make India a $10 Trillion economy by 2030 and the call of Prime Minister Modi to reach a target of $5 Trillion economy by 2025, the opportunity window is short with no scope of making mistakes and therefore combined inputs are required to do it right the first time itself.
