In 2021, India’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) traced over 14 lakh cybersecurity incidents. It has forced the organizations have changed their investment priorities, and 4 out of 10 organizations in India have initiated, or are planning to initiate, investment in cyber security by focusing on areas such as customer identity and access management, zero trust architecture, managed security services, cloud security and endpoint security, according to Global Digital Trust Insights Survey. Further, as per Gartner, by 2025, 40% of the Board of Directors will have a dedicated cybersecurity committee overseen by a qualified board member, up from less than 10% today.
India being the fastest-growing market in terms of digital technology adoption is actually broadened the attack surface ranging from payments, e-shopping, WFH, interconnected devices, and even hybrid work networks. Which is why, there is an alarming need to implement a cohesive and resilient cybersecurity strategy, rather than approaching the cybersecurity journey in disconnected silos.
Data, operations, and technology running in silos makes the overall cyber ecosystem very complex to manage, thus increasing attack vulnerabilities. It results in various critical consequences, including financial losses, lack of resilience and inability to sustain growth in the long term. Hence, the organizations need to realign themselves on striking a balance between in-house resources and managed services, and moving to next-gen technologies from legacy systems.
Against this context, Mint, India’s most revered business publication and portal, brings to you – The Cybersecurity Summit - a hybrid evening that will bring together industry experts and torchbearers to deliberate on the cybersecurity best-practices, its implementation, challenges and solutions, thus carving a roadmap for the future.
