A Set of Policy Recommendations to Improve Cyber Security

 

The Indian IoT ecosystem is projected to increase its connected devices to over 2.7 billion by 2020, of which the industrial IoT adoption is predicted to be playing a key role in this digital transformation. The research aimed to design governance policies to stimulate public private

partnership (PPP) networks, in an effort to deal with (existing and upcoming) cyber risks in the Indian industrial IoT. The meta-governance process steps as presented by Dunn-Cavelty (2009) were applied for identifying the role of the government to coordinate and stimulate self-regulating PPP networks to achieve enhanced cyber security. While applying Hevner’s design approach, the relevance of Indian IIoT business need was incorporated by first studying the present policy framework. A case study analysis using Consultative Objective Risk Analysis System (CORAS) was performed to identify risk treatment and attention points in the Indian PPP governance. These were corroborated with the interview inputs from public, private, and international experts active within the critical infrastructures and PPPs.

 

The findings conclude with the under-represented PPP policy recommendations for a continuous, responsive governance to the rapid technology advancements in the cyber domain. The recommendations are aimed to bridge the gap between policy and implementation. “Shortage of

skilled manpower”, “duty to care of all stakeholders”, “unified cyber incident management with sectorial and state CERTs”, and “fostering IoT startups”, among others, are recommendations that need to be addressed. The policy recommendations on PPP governance are derived to accelerate and enhance cyber security in the Indian industrial IoT ecosystem.

 

Key Words: Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Public Private Partnership, Meta-Governance, Indian draft IoT policy, CORAS Risk Modeling.
