India’s advanced next generation submarines, Scorpene data leak case has taken a big form. This is detrimental to Indian national security, even though government, navy and a bunch of old navy men think tanks would want to think otherwise. This leak also poses a threat to the commercial interests of French contractor DCNS, the manufacturer of these submarines. This could lead to questions being raised against standards of data protection in the firm. Their contract for manufacture of similar submarines in Australia is under lens as well. Before all, three questions better be answered:
- Who was responsible for data leak?
- What will be the implications of this leak and how to prevent them?
- What steps should be taken to prevent such a leak in future?
We will be answering these questions in our subsequent posts. So stay around!
