Cyber Security is most important issue for government, business and individual users. Attacks have been initiated by individuals, as well as countries. In this it usually include the government networks, defence, companies, or political organizations, depending upon whether the attacker was seeking military intelligence, conducting diplomatic or industrial espionage, or intimidating political activists for their target. In addition, national borders mean little or nothing to cyber attackers, and attributing an attack to a specific location can be difficult, which also makes a response problematic.
Breaches are also defined to include misdirected or undelivered faxes, emails, and parcels, or other errors involving responsible parties who have no interest in accessing or misusing the data.
A few popular case studies are here of cyber security:-

This after the ‘switch over’ was done ahead of the commonwealth games in 2010 itself and in the national capital! Any guesses on how robust the Aadhaar authentication system will be in rural areas?
In March, when the five heads of state (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) were in Delhi for the BRICS summit, the Delhi Police’s communication system collapsed. The Rs. 100-crore Tetra system was brought in to replace the old wireless sets. Terrestrial Trunked Radio (Tetra) — a professional mobile radio and two-way transceiver — collapsed during a major mock drill in the city on February 15 too, and gave the police problems during the April 15 MCD polls.
