Commissioner of Police,

Cyberabad

Society for Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC) is an important player in the Cyberabad ecosystem. The government and industry working together on the SCSC platform brings us closer in recognition of our interconnectedness and in pursuit of our shared goals regarding safety and security

Many individuals and organisations reach out to the police on various issues faced by them. Guided by SCSC, we look into the cases and close them to the satisfaction of the victims. However, our work does not stop there. We discuss the issues and challenges of the society with SCSC and other relevant stakeholders and design interventions to address them.

Some of the impactful interventions include traffic volunteering, Margadarshak program, Project Safe Stay, New hire orientation, security training etc. These interventions resulted in better awareness and preparedness of matters pertaining to safety and security. The impact of coming together for progressive causes builds a better community. I invite all organizations to come forward and join SCSC as part of the private-public partnership to build a better ecosystem.

I have been associated with SCSC since its founding in 2006 and I have seen it grow and flourish over the years, serving the many societal needs. SCSC enables dialogue, promotes awareness, and solves societal problems in partnership with the industry and government. SCSC has been a truly agile organisation, understanding new issues and challenges, and designing relevant and sustainable interventions even while adapting to new ways of working and engaging all our stakeholders. I invite you to peruse through our website to appreciate the breadth and depth of the interventions.

It is said that the resilience of a society is revealed in a crisis. All through the Covid crisis, the SCSC collaboration has shown that though we are not sitting together, we are in this together.

When committed institutions, leaders and citizens work together, we become force multipliers. I invite all organisations in Cyberabad to join hands with SCSC and become force multipliers in making our city reach new heights.

Our History

The IT industry in Telangana got its first symbolic landmark with the Cyber Towers in 1998. Soon after, the Cyberbad Police Commissionerate was set up to look into the safety and security needs of this side of the city. In 2006, in view of the rapid growth of Cyberabad, a collaborative effort by the Industry and Government was ideated to take care of the security & safety interests of this area, supplementing the efforts of the Government. Hence, Society for Cyberabad Security Council was formed.

Cyberabad is now a hub for many industries such as Information Technology, Pharma, Engineering, Health, Hospitality, Finance, Education etc. It also incorporates many townships. As of 2020, Hyderabad has 600,000 employees in the IT/ITES sector, working in more than 1500 companies.The IT exports from Hyderabad (Telangana) stood second in the country at ₹128,807 crore (US$ 15 billion) in FY 2019-18 improving from previous year ₹109,219 crore ($14 billion, 17.93% CAGR) in FY 2018-19.
