Cybersecurity Centre set up in Chennai

A new Cyber Security Response Centre (CSRC) has been set up in Chennai, by digital infrastructure provider- Tata Communications.

The company recently set up a CSRC in Dubai and has other centres in Pune and Singapore and plans to establish a US facility in 2019. In a statement, it said that it will introduce a CSRC in Europe later this year to help its customers comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May and has changed the way the internet both collects and manages private data. Under the regulation, citizens have more control over the security of their personal information. Media platforms are required to follow strict regulations to ensure this data is protected.

The new centre in Chennai will provide comprehensive security support for customers and function as an experiential showcase for the company’s Managed Security Services (MSS). Managed security services are network security facilities that have been outsourced to a service provider.

Interactive visual walls, dashboard displays, 3D object-recognition, and a Virtual Reality (VR) experience are a part of the MSS portfolio. They will enable organisations to build, monitor and regulate their cybersecurity platforms.

The CSRC is powered by a host of state-of-the-art tools and platforms including a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), cyber-threat intelligence and a cloud-based security framework. It is supported by an attack-predictions platform driven by machine learning. These features are offered through a customer portal that presents a comprehensive security dashboard, offering a proactive and business-based view of cybersecurity.

While inaugurating the centre, the CEO of the Data Security Council of India (DSCI), Ms Rama Vedashree said that cybercrime threats and cases in the country have only escalated in terms of complexity, severity, and impact.

She said that the DSCI believes that cybersecurity innovation and entrepreneurship are essential to build robust capabilities and to strengthen the cybersecurity infrastructure of the country.

India needs to adopt a proactive approach to cybersecurity and have stronger mitigation capabilities. Organisations and governments are advancing digitally by integrating emerging technologies into their core operations and the threat of cyber-attacks has increased.

According to the company, MSS becomes crucial when cyber threats come in different forms. Its press statement said that in a survey, close to 20% of organisations faced at least one IoT – based attack in the past three years.

Cloud-security is also a growing concern for firms. In 2017, the market for cloud-security was US $1.5 billion, and it is expected to grow to $3.5 billion by 2021.

The security centre will help international businesses with their digital processes, through the broad range of managed security services that it provides. These services deal with security concerns across networks and infrastructures, information, applications, risks, compliance, and threat management.

Consisting of over 300 highly trained security professionals, the company’s portfolio includes cloud-based offerings to match varying business demands. These offerings are easily scalable and include support for global risk, compliance and privacy regulations.

The Chief Digital Officer of the company said that the threat landscape continues to evolve rapidly, and the company will develop in anticipation of the changing cybersecurity needs of its customers. More than ever, businesses must be both proactive and predictive. Real-time security analytics will enable customers to keep their cloud operations secure across all points of access.
