HYDERABAD: In the wake of the increased need for security awareness regarding terror, cyber crimes and women’s safety, the Society for Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC) has been revamped. CV Anand, Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad and chairman of SCSC, said Wednesday the move was meant to take the eight-year-old organisation to the next level, bringing all the stakeholders on board for better results.
The SCSC has been allotted an office space inside Cyberabad commissionerate and three paid employees, including an assistant director, have been appointed. Four sub-committees, namely Women’s Forum, Traffic Forum, Security Forum and Membership Forum have also been formed. The revamp of the organisation is done to aptly represent various organisations like HYSEA (Hyderabad Software Enterprises Association), NASSCOM (National Association of Software and Services Companies) and other IT associations.
Bharani Kumar Aroll, VP India operations & Global IT/BPO services of Butler America, has been elected the new secretary of SCSC. Srikanth, regional director of NASSCOM has been elected the joint secretary. Karthikeya, DCP, Madhapur, is the new convenor of the organisation. Apart from 8 office-bearers, 22 executive committee members have also been elected during a recent general body meeting where the bye-laws have been amended. They would also bring out a newsletter and e-newsletter every month for creating awareness.
The Cyberabad police have scheduled meetings with security wings of different IT companies in a phased manner starting next week where personnel from CISF and Octopus would give orientation on security consciousness. “CISF and Octopus will be involved in studying security situations. Internally, companies have systems in place and we want to improve that, especially in case of a lone wolf attack, the security department may not be aware of anything beyond frisking,” Anand said.
The new secretary of SCSC Bharani Kumar Aroll said his team would try to expand the member base to other establishments like shopping malls, hospitals, schools etc and not restrict to IT companies. “We want to bring an Emergency Response Procedure where every IT company have a system aligned to what the Cyberabad police have established,” he said. Mamata Vegunta, director HR Invesco and joint secretary, Women Council, said: “We want to reach all the end level members by using technlogy.”
