Responsibilities of the CIO
Role of CTO has seen a significant change. He often leads, motivates, inspires especially non tech personnel to join the digital bandwagon and handholds the transition for the company, protects the assets of a company, its crucial data and functions. He needs to have sound knowledge of data privacy across India, changing matrix in the U.S, Europe and other parts of the world. Advanced training ought to be rendered for incident response and safeguarding technical and legal framework and reporting compliances. He has a major contribution in satisfying regulators that due diligence and monitoring practices are in order in the company and all policies are being adopted and implemented within the company.

 

Key priorities for 2021
As businesses have shifted to online mode, the work culture of organisations has undergone a sea change. Organisations need to be better equipped with technology, infrastructure, networks and even regulatory compliance protocols. Most entities leverage efficiencies of time and productivity but also harbour more risk of managing data and proprietary assets. We advise clients to have a Work from home policy, social media policy and internet usage policy in place. Also every organisation must have a surveillance policy, IPR policy and Non-disclosure agreements in place.

 

Adopting Work-From Anywhere
Work from home, flexible delivery time, purchase of new subscriptions, investing in creating remote access data banks and cloud based services, overhauling business resilience policies, SOPs and HR and internet use policies. Companies had to reinvent their business and operational structures and HR management teams during the pandemic. Most of the supervision was more virtual and software based than physical.

 

Redesigning IT & Security strategy
Both technical and legal frameworks have been revised for our clients, including social media usage policy, internet use policy, WFH policy. Deployment of technical tools and software such as antispyware, firewall protection, Virtual Private Network, password managers, network and endpoint security are few measures .Cloud based databanks, dedicated servers, safe hybrid cloud based services are being strengthened in security and legal contract formation.
