“As security in cyber space becomes a challenge and attacks are more organized, governments, organizations and cybersecurity experts need to join forces and develop a common framework or language, so that our collective defence and responses grow that much stronger.”
Shree Parthasarathy, Chief Innovation Officer and National Leader, Cyber Risk Service, Deloitte India
“Cybersecurity operationalization needs a holistic approach to integrate technologies, processes and logs which matter in the cybersecurity landscape. Security operations are repetitive in nature and can easily be automated. Every process with a fixed input and a predictable output should be considered for automation.”
Saritha Auti, CISO and Assistant Vice President, Cyber Security, Cognizant
“With any security outcome, you will always need to look at how the technology and processes will work within ecosystem. There is no such thing as “set and forget” in security.”
