Doshi, now chief information security officer at HDFC Life and CyberEdboard executive member, began his career journey with a product-based company, moved to a core IT service provider and finally entered the financial services sector. He has a thirst for emerging technologies and practices.
"DevSecOps is going to hold a dominant role." Doshi says. "It is like an elephant in the room for which everyone has a different definition. But to put it in layman’s language, it is like 'shift left.' It means, right from the time that an idea is conceived to developing a code, you embed security as part of the culture. Security is not just the job of a CISO but every person in the organization."
