Increase in Ransomware in 2022 Will Kill Cyber InsuranceGroup CISO of John Keells Says Enterprises Will Have to Change Security Strategies 'On the Go'
As ransomware threats continue to grow in 2022, cyber insurance companies have clearly stated that they do not want to talk about the "cyber" part of insurance. The only option for enterprises is to build cyber resilience, says Sri Lanka-based Sujit Christy, group CISO at John Keells Holdings PLC.
"It is clear that the ownership lies on the organizations to build resilience and a robust risk management program with continuous monitoring and testing the controls," he says.
In this interview with Information Security Media Group, Christy discusses:
- Moving away from implicit trust and validating trust of user access and control;
- Tackling third-party risks;
- Managing the endpoints with a central monitoring mechanism.
Christy is a cybersecurity adoption evangelist providing vital guidance to improve cyber defenses while raising cybersecurity awareness to improve risk reduction and compliance. He is a director with Layers-7 Seguro Consultoria Private Limited and is president of the (ISC)2 Colombo Chapter, Sri Lanka.
