Terrorist Organisations Like ISIL Use Internet Technologies To Recruit & Gather Support: Defence Minister

Defence Ministet Manohar Parrikar speech at DEFCOM 2015
Information Communication Technology has important role to play. Infact future wars may be cyber war. Infact, I see signals of it. This is not necessarily the way we think while boots on the ground can not be replaced, which I think very strongly that conventional armies can not be replaced but they can be equipped them with equipment which can provide them information to fight in a well decided and well planned and well equipped way without getting interrupted as a ... weapons that you can be fired by friendly fire because of lack of information, which may become farce.

With all development of internet technologies, you can off course use them properly. You take that example of terrorist Organisation like Daesh or ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant). They use internet to ensure lot of recruitment and support they are the ones who are best user of technology for promoting their cause.
My worry is information black out, which can result out of disruptive mechanism. Information corruption can be other danger to the platforms which they use. And information overload is also a problem because of IT, you can get so much of information that vital information out of that become something like finding a needle in a haystack. How do you do this? I think, IT has to come to the rescue of this also. I think, artificial intelligence or search engines many times been utilized to solve these issues.

So one way while we progress through the ICT use and make more digitize army, the other danger is disruption by the enemy. While we progress on one side, the other side is regressive and we need to enhance our capabilities to ensure that we are protected from disruptive cyber attacks or cyber manipulations.

It is very important, India is been source of human intelligence. We have been in the forefront of software development, hardware is just coming in. I think we need to go into better hardware designing and integration in our streams.

In two days, I am very sure, utilized to ensure all these aspects as pointed out by Lt. Gen. Kohli will be properly discussed and Indian Army not only utilizes the digital advantage but also protects itself from disruptive technologies of the other adversaries. I think these are important aspects which can be important aspect during next 2 days' semina
