AP’S LEAD IN GOVERNANCE

Making Headway in the World of Cyber Security

With the increase in digital connectivity and post-demonetization, cyber security becomes a crucial element for India.

Andhra Pradesh Cyber Security Operations Centre (APCSOC) in Vijayawada is equipped with predictive threat analytics capabilities. The security coverage extends to all central and state government entities. Andhra Pradesh is building the next-generation skills that will make Amaravati a thriving hub undertaking advanced research in combating the ever-evolving cyber threats.

Transforming governance through Drones

Hon’ble Chief Minister, Sri N. Chandrababu Naidu, launched drones that are manufactured in Visakhapatnam, branded as ‘Made in Andhra Pradesh’, which are first-of-their-kind drones to be deployed in for capturing the progress of rural roads. The drone based governance is used in tourism, agricultural sector, mines, forests, irrigation projects, maintenance of law and order and better municipal administration.

A state-level command control centre has been set up in the state capital along with similar major command control centres in Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Tirupati and Anantapur, besides district headquarters, to help in real time governance.

The ongoing Polavaram project has real time monitoring and tracking by the hi-tech drones deployed at the site. In order to track the status of the Polavaram multi-purpose irrigation project, Hon’ble Chief Minister Sri N. Chandrababu Naidu is monitoring all the works through the drone cameras deployed at the project.
