ISMG Editors: Cybersecurity Trends at Mumbai SummitSummit Speakers, Guests Focus on Cyber Extortion, Threat Landscape and Mitigation
This week, Information Security Media Group editors covered the hot topics at ISMG's Cybersecurity Summit: Mumbai, including redefining cybersecurity leadership, understanding your adversary's next move and the debate over how to tackle cyber extortion.
Cybersecurity clearly has the attention of modern boards of directors who must be aware of threat landscapes to make decisions that affect enterprisewide cyber defense and mitigation, said keynote speaker Bhimaraya Metri, director at the Nagpur-based Indian Institute of Management.
"In today's age of frequent technological disruptions, technology leaders and professionals must routinely reskill and upskill themselves to remain relevant, and the same goes for the board," Metri said. "Board members must educate themselves about cybersecurity challenges, the impact on an organization's operations and how the threat landscape could evolve in the years ahead."
The panelists - Suparna Goswami, associate editor; Jayant Chakravarti, senior editor; and Prajeet Nair, assistant editor, ISMG Global News Desk - discussed:
- How the Digital India Act promises to provide safe and secure internet to Indians and develop a future-ready cybersecurity framework;
- New strategies for tracking the next move of hackers as enterprises focus on their cybersecurity posture;
- SIEM modernization for better security and productivity.
