Mr. Vinayak Godse, CEO-DSCI reckoned that the National Centre of Excellence, a joint initiative of DSCI and MeitY, has been incubating start-ups with their ideas, more than 80+ since it started its operations in early 2020. There is an urgent need to attract engineering and innovative minds to solve problems in nationally important areas such as SCADA/OT Security. The acceleration program is devised to seek the contributions of organizations working in critical sectors in creating SCADA/OT security technologies capabilities and enterprise-ready products with the help of start-ups.
