CIS interviews Nitin Pai, policy analyst, as part of the Cybersecurity Series.

“There is always a tension between the public interest and the individual's interest. Most republics function on this principle; they take a part of your freedom or liberty away in order to guarantee you the rest of your liberties and freedoms. So, I don’t think this inherent tension would be any different when it comes to cyberspace.”

Centre for Internet and Society presents its sixteenth installment of the CIS Cybersecurity Series. 

The CIS Cybersecurity Series seeks to address hotly debated aspects of cybersecurity and hopes to encourage wider public discourse around the topic. 

Nitin Pai is Founder & Fellow for geopolitics at the Takshashila Institution, an independent networked think tank and editor of Pragati – The Indian National Interest Review, a publication on strategic affairs, public policy and governance. He is a graduate of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy from where he obtained a Master in Public Administration degree. Nitin is an alumnus of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and National College, Bangalore.
