Government has asked e-office users of the Civil Secretariat to remain “extra cautious” and “vigilant” underling that the dangers of hacking cannot be overruled.

“The implementation of e-office in the Civil Secretariat has brought about a great deal of efficiency in the overall working and disposal of Government business in the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, besides ensuring functionality of the Civil Secretariat both at Jammu as well as in Srinagar,” read a government circular.

“Notwithstanding these benefits, this online system, like any other IT based system is susceptible to online invasions especially hacking.”

While security of this system is being strengthened, the government said the dangers of hacking cannot be overruled.

“All e-office users therefore, have to remain extra cautious and vigilant in respect of potential online invasions and hacking attempts,” the order read.

Accordingly, the government has enjoined upon all e-office users to be mindful of online invasions and interventions like hacking of e-office.

“Any unusual file movement/approval shall be reported urgently to the authorities,” the government said.
