Currently, the government of India is motivating to Indians to do the business transaction online but the government is not ready to stop such type of cyber crime, we do not have that type of infrastructure. Actually, it is not just enough to make efforts at the government level, which is, in some one happening but cyber crime affects hundreds of individual system and firms all of whom need to be ready with the specialized team.
