      Growing concerns over cybersecurity, both in India and around the world, have given companies investing in offshore information technology — the engine that drives India’s I.T. prosperity — cause for concern. A recent study of more than 50 Indian information technology companies that compete for overseas clientele found that a full 90 percent of their global customers consider security a top priority — and that software security would affect how those companies spend their I.T. dollars. Cybersecurity has become so important to India that it now has the stated goal to make its emerging digital economy one of the world’s most secure. This paper discusses why and how the government of India has formally committed to secure software development principles in its long-term economic planning - many of which are defined by the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). The paper also gives a case study on the use of the principles of the SDL in CERT-In as well as the government of India National Informatics Centre.
