Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday said that cyber terrorism posed a major threat to the country’s security.

Manohar Parrikar made the comments at a conference on challenges and solutions regarding border safety issues in Jaipur.

“Cyber attack or cyber terrorism poses a threat to border security. Now this border is not imaginary, you do not know where it starts from. But it can, if it gets converted into warfare,” he said.

He added that India would not tolerate any act or event that risked its security.

“Zero tolerance is the only solution when it comes to the security of the country. That has to be our mind set,” added Parrikar.

Apart from Parrikar, Junior Information and Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, officers from the armed forces, local administration and representatives of local organisations were also present at the conference.
