Lt-General P Mohapatra on Monday.

"There are various cryptographic controls that we have put in place and 
there are training activities to ensure that no loss of information 
takes place,'' he added.

Lt-Gen Mohapatra's statement comes in the wake of reports that a vast 
cyber spy network controlled from China has hacked into nearly 1,300 
government and private computers across 103 countries, including those 
of the Indian embassy in Washington and the Tibetan spiritual leader 
Dalai Lama.

As earlier reported by TOI, the Army is boosting the "cyber-security'' 
of its information networks right down to the level of divisions, which
