What is the main objective behind setting up the cyber security centre?

It is the part of a strategic initiative to move ahead in terms of developing cutting edge tools and products to enable key business requirements in the area of cyber security. It is a world class centre which will help the government enhance their potential in tackling cyber threats and will help in building capacity to tackle the new age cyber security threats. For over two decades now, we have helped companies and governments navigate through an ever-evolving cyber security landscape. As the intensity of data breaches continue to grow, cyber security is becoming a part of every organisation’s risk management agenda. The need for accelerated innovation and expanded engineering capabilities could not get more significant for us in the near future.

We collaborate with different government agencies to help them tackle emerging cyber threats. The expertise of our technology and products is being utilised in protecting national assets of the country in diverse fields like railways, oil refineries and power grids. There are other engagements which we would not like to disclose at this juncture. Cyber security is continuously evolving and we are pushing our boundaries to provide the most stable and effective solutions for cyber protection.

What is the road map for the cyber security centre?

We will continue to design world class solutions in terms of developing high security products to ward off all kinds of cyber threats. The talent pool of young IT professionals, strong engineering talent, diverse skills, innovative ideas and professional excellence will lead to the generation of excellent products and cyber security tools.
