Indian IT experts who are experienced in fighting cyber crime can get a chance to go to Germany to help the government ward off cyber terrorism. 

German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen, who met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, has requested India to sent IT experts to Germany to attend an international conference on cyber warfare later this year. 

Germany is plagued with the problem of Botnet virus affecting millions of computers across the country, and Ursula pointed at India's teeming human resources skilled in Information Technology to help fight the cyber warfare. 

The Indian IT experts' inputs at the conference can also make it into Germany's White Paper on National Defence Strategy for 2016.

On a three-day-long visit to India, Ursula also backed Modi's "Make In India" campaign.
