Cyber risk

Tata Communications have unveiled a Cyber Security Response Centre (CSRC) in Chennai to protect international businesses from advanced threats. With this cyber risk center, Tata Communications will be securing applications, networks, infrastructures and applications that are hosted on-premise as well as in the cloud.

According to Tata Communications, the introduction of GDPR (General Data Protection and Regulation) has changed the way the internet collects and manages private data. They say that this regulation will allow enterprises and individuals to have more control over their data but won’t give them total protection from virus attacks.

By launching a Cyber Security Response Center in Chennai, Tata Communications say that they will be providing comprehensive security support for customers through an advanced dashboard for a proactive and business-based view of cyber security. They also say that this cyber risk center will be powered by a host of state-of-the-art tools and platforms including a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) cloud-based framework.

Speaking about the launch, Rama Vedashree, CEO, The Data Security Council of India (DSCI), commented:

Cyber threats and incidences have only escalated in terms of complexity, severity and impact. Proactive approach, as well as strong mitigation capabilities, becomes imperative as organisations and governments move ahead in their digital journey while adopting emerging technologies.

At DSCI, we believe that cyber security innovation & entrepreneurship are essential to building robust capabilities and strengthening the cyber security posture of the country. We are glad to see organisations like Tata Communications making investments to build capabilities to address the global and domestic demand of security services.

Industry analysts claim that cybersecurity is a growing business that is touted to reach USD 3.5 billion by 2021. They also say that this move, which was imminent after Tata Communications launched a cyber security response hub in Dubai, will benefit international businesses that are looking forward to revamping their online businesses at large.
