“Infogain enhance the organisation cyber security framework by investing in best of security tools”

GLOBAL CISO - Infogain

 

Key priorities for 2021
Over the last two years, CISO responsibilities have drastically changed. Initially, CISOs were only responsible for managing information security and establishing protocols for identifying and neutralizing threats. But with the rapid adoption of digital transformation in organizations across industries, it is now the CISO’s responsibility to bring that change, accelerate digital operations in the organization. For example, when referring to security, they must evaluate and identify when to change the organization’s traditional approach, which has been followed for years. Furthermore, to make an organization more robust towards information security culture, CISOs usually work on different security innovations, particularly the new technologies and tools that can be adopted into the organization.

 

Adopting Work-From Anywhere
To sail through the security risks brought forth by this new normal, we strongly recommend the need for endpoint security controls as everyone is working from home and connecting to the organization network. At Infogain, we have installed some endpoint security tools on employee laptops to mitigate security risks. Notably, these tools help us monitor employees precisely what they are doing on the organization network. Further, they provide a controlled Internet environment, as restricted sites and unauthorized software installations can be a huge risk to organizational security.

So, I think the biggest priority for organizations should be to install the best endpoint security tools on a laptop to mitigate the risk of this new work-from-anywhere environment.

Redesigning IT & Security strategy
Looking at these new threats, we identified the need to re-evaluate our IT and security strategy, keeping our long-term and short-term goals in mind. For example, as working from home leads to new security threats, users need to understand their information security and have good security compliance awareness. Information security awareness is a high priority for us at Infogain. We engage with employees frequently, sending mailers and/or conducting activities such as quizzes to make them aware and make information security part of the overall culture. 

Also, looking at the increased ransomware attacks across the globe, we are now planning to deploy new information security and cybersecurity tools on a short-term plan, which was initially a part of our long-term goal. So, the long-term strategy that we had mapped out in terms of deployment of security tools is now a part of the short-term strategy.
