While industry has progressed phenomenally through digital transformation in the past 2 years, cybersecurity remains in a precarious ituation in 2022, therefore an industry huddle to plan an effective strategy to face the challenges successfully, is in order. The scale and complexity of historical security defences have been stretched to their limits and need to be upgraded. CISOs need to work towards security transformation, and as they do, every process and layer of the security technology stack is in play.
2020 -2021 have seen a massive rise in cyber-attacks in India and the cyber threat numbers in India have been quite alarming over the past 18 months. According to India's Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), the country was subjected to over 600,000 cyber-attacks in the second half of 2021 alone. India's large attack surface has presented an attractive target to malicious actors, and they have attacked in huge numbers. It is a daunting situation which needs to be addressed at the earliest. According to a recent report by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), India has made only modest progress in developing cybersecurity policies despite some high-profile attacks. From Legislation and policy planning, building a skilled workforce, to driving awareness - much work needs to be done.
