India Takes Action to Improve Security in Outsourcing

I recently wrote a post on: What are the Security Implications of Outsourcing.

To sum my thoughts up, fraud is growing all around the world. With the rapid growth of the IT industry in India, the corporations (making record profits from it all) have a moral obligation to their customers and even the workers in India to ensure their security standards are up to par.

Failure to do so would only make India a target for criminals to perform their misdeeds. With the personal and financial information of people from all over the world, we can expect no less.

Secondary victims of this would also be the honest workers in India, who could lose employment due to bad press.

Many in India realize that these "security breaches" could be deadly to the industry and here is an example that they are taking proactive measures to address it (courtesy of ZDNet):

I guess people in India with some sense read your previous post.

India make good money with the current outsourcing programs. If nothing is done they stand to lose a lot.
