Preparedness to face challenges of data security:
Our organisation has been actively involved in capacity building activities -on creating awareness on cybersecurity, both within and outside the organization. Thrust is on deploying latest tools and techniques to safeguard data and address privacy concerns. During Covid pandemic our organisation delivered more than 50 webinar sessions for chambers of commerce such as NASSCOM, CII, FICCI amongst other bodies to empower people at large.
The best practices adopted for remote working:
Extensive cybersecurity training was imparted to employees and usage of reliable VPN, conference and collaborative work platforms was encouraged. Flexible timings were allowed and mostly work and projects were monitored digitally and daily work reports were created and shared through collaborative platforms.
role of CISOs:
As most businesses shifted from brick and mortar model to digital medium, cybersecurity assumed greater significance in Covid and post Covid times! This shift will require greater mobilisation of resources, both in terms of equipment, infrastructure and manpower training to deal with new technological demands of changing business models.
