Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) which comes under the Ministry of Home Affairs through social media handles aims at promoting cyber-safety and cybersecurity awareness. It coordinates with law enforcement agencies in flagging cybercrime-related cases for early detection and redressal. It works with an objective to prevent the use of cyberspace to further the cause of extremist and terrorist organisations.

 

I4C is tasked with coordinating and effectively combating cybercrime in the country. It coordinates with law enforcement agencies in flagging cybercrime-related cases for early detection and redressal. It serves as a node in the fight against cybercrime. It intends to identify research problems and conduct R&D activities in the development of new technologies and forensic tools in collaboration with academia/research institutes in India and abroad. The goal is to prevent the use of cyberspace to further the cause of extremist and terrorist organisations.

 

I4C recommends that cyber laws be amended as needed to keep up with rapidly changing technologies and international cooperation.

 

In consultation with the relevant nodal authority in the MHA, it coordinates all activities related to the implementation of Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties (MLAT) with other countries regarding cybercrime.

 

The project to establish I4C, with an estimated cost of Rs. 415.86 crore, was approved in October 2018 to deal with all sorts of cybercrime in a comprehensive and coordinated manner.
