JPNN|New Delhi | July 24, 2014| India should be more aware of cyber security threats

and the time to act in this regard is now, an Israeli security solutions firm has said even as it averred that the two countries have many common "opponents". "I believe India should be more aware of cyber threats. I am sure that once India will be aware of cyber threats, the necessary steps would be taken," Zori Kor, vice president of Israeli firm ASERO Worldwide, said Thursday. Stressing on the importance of having cyber security, Kor said it was "unfortunate" that the Indian public is not fully aware of threats in this field, which can even have a ripple effect on the economy. "As the public still doesn't understand how complex the challenge is, may be some decision makers are hesitating whether to take the necessary steps in order to meet the future challenges," said Kor, who is on a visit to India in connection with an upcoming homeland security conference in Israel.

"My recommendation is to start dealing with it (cyber security needs) now because it takes time," said Kor, who recently retired from Israeli Security Agency after 25 years of service in a number of counter-terrorism and protective security posts. Adding that cyber security is not an area where one size fits all as the environment and threats keep changing from time to time, he said, "If we answer only the current situation, it might not be good enough. We have to think what the bad guy's next step would be in order to answer that. "Talking about the salient features of Israeli security capabilities, he said the country believes in partnership and in sharing knowledge and experience regarding implementation of technological platforms for internal security.

"We are in the same boat. Many of our opponents are unfortunately yours as well because we have good ideas and creativity and so do you. So, whoever is trying to steal good ideas from us might want to steal it from you as well," he said while opining that India was one of the "few friends" that Israel had.India is now the main export target of the Israeli defence industry; however, both countries avoid revealing details about the scale and nature of their security trade.In 2012, the Israeli defence ministry announced that the country's defence exports stood at an annual USD 7 billion of which homeland security accounted for about USD 1.5 billion.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
