Mandar Kulkarni, the CISO of Grasim Industries, spoke to Cyber Management Alliance at the Wisdom of Crowds event, held in Mumbai on May 30, 2019. 

 

Apart from sharing his experience with the GCHQ-Certified CIPR training course offered by Cyber Management Alliance, he also delved into several subjects that concern cybersecurity, with specific references to India. 

The first among these, of course, was Cyber Incident Planning and Response, for which Mandar feels many organisations are grossly underprepared. He warned that a breach will probably affect most businesses in the country and the only thing that can protect them is how well prepared they are for one. 

A shortage of skilled staff, particularly in the Indian context seems to be a huge problem. Mandar highlights how technology solutions and vendors are growing at a rapid rate to match pace with the burgeoning sophistication of attacks. However, there is a gaping dearth of skilled professionals who can understand these technologies and solutions and quickly learn and unlearn everything that’s happening in the world of cybersecurity. 

Speaking of email resilience, Mandar underlines the importance of email to business continuity and reiterates the urgency of strengthening the security posture of email inboxes for organisations across industries and markets. 

The number and complexity of cyber-attacks is growing by the day. Due to limited team sizes and a limited number of experts, it’s humanly impossible to contain the threats and compromises or even respond to all alerts manually. Mandar rounds up his thoughts by emphasizing on the need to automate and orchestrate as many processes as possible.
