Asks them to be vigilant, dangers of hacking can’t be overruled
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir administration Wednesday directed e-office users of civil secretariat to remain extra cautious and vigilant, saying that the dangers of hacking cannot be over ruled.
“The implementation of e-office in the Civil Secretariat has brought about a great deal of efficiency in the overall working and disposal of Government business in the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, besides ensuring functionality of the Civil Secretariat both at Jammu as well as in Srinagar,” reads a government circular.
“Notwithstanding these benefits, this online system like any other IT based system is susceptible to online invasions especially hacking,” it added.
While security of this system is being strengthened, the government said, dangers of hacking cannot be over ruled.
“All e-office users therefore, have to remain extra cautious and vigilant in respect of potential online invasions and hacking attempts,” reads the circular.
Accordingly, the government enjoined upon all e-office users to be mindful of online invasions and interventions like hacking of e-office.
“Any unusual file movement/approval shall be reported urgently to the authorities,” the government said, adding, “Further, the veracity/authenticity of any such order/direction shall be established before any action for compliance is taken.”
