As we navigate the challenges posed by COVID-19 a new normal is set to emerge: most organizations are looking at ‘working from home’ as a viable solution to both reduce the operational burden and increase productivity. As a result, there will be a situation wherein employees will have to sign in remotely to corporate networks and access data through cloud-based applications. But this shift will surely create a new, target-rich environment for scammers, hackers, and phishers. It could also open doors to a range of security risks and cyber threats. And if compromised, the unauthorized access to stored information will have a devastating effect on the reputation, revenue, and continuity of business.
To discuss these scenarios, DynamicCIO, in partnership with Akamai Technologies, organized a CXO Virtual Discussion on “Business as Usual in Testing Times.” The discussion was attended by nearly 13 top technology and security executives drawn from the IT/ITeS sector.
Participating in the discussion were two senior executives from Akamai namely Prasad Mandava, VP Engineering and Managing Director – India for Akamai Technologies and Bruno Goveas, Strategic Sales Director, India Cloud Security, Akamai Technologies along with Mr. Sharath Babu, Assistant General Manager, IT at Cyient, Rishi Rajpal, Vice President Global Security Concentrix, Mr. Archie Jackon, Senior Director IT and IS Incedo Inc. and Ms. Kuhu Adhikary, Associate Vice President, Information Security, Genpact.
