India would possibly make a very bad advertisement for cyber security. In this podcast, in association with Forbes India, Shishir Prasad, the Deputy Editor and Rohin Dharmakumar, the Senior Asst. Editor talk about different kinds of attacks that plague both the government agencies and the corporate world and what basic steps can we take to act wisely, starting with not having passwords which are either our last names or the name of the locality we live in.

In this 2 min snippet, Rohin and Shishir tell us why 'Frank Abagnale' equivalents in the hacking world cannot be bought out to solve cyber crime unless these ace hackers are coerced into doing so. That's where FBI scores over its Indian counterpart.
