Prioritizing productivity over security indicating a more expansive role of CISOs
Preparedness to face challenges of data security:
At Hitachi Systems Micro Clinic, we have undertaken some pre-emptive measures across organizations to prevent data thefts, implement enterprise security policies, and establishing a process to create and monitor applications. While implementing work from home solutions we have strengthened backup and archive, network security, endpoint security, and content and web filtering. Simultaneously, we ensure awareness and training of employees on cybersecurity best practices and policies to proactively safeguard data.
The best practices adopted for remote working:
The biggest differentiator we have made within our organization was changing the perception of employees towards new normal, where working is not associated with physically present in an office. However, a sudden transition did not come easy, we ensured the safety of our employees’ paramount and continued our business-as-usual by shifting gears and adopting work-from-home practices all our employees. We also implemented multifactor authentication for all our remote users to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access.
Role of CISOs:
There is a shift in the outlook of organizations from prioritizing productivity over security which is bound to change indicating a more expansive role of CISOs. This would include establishing a robust cybersecurity practice from meeting ever-increasing regulatory complexity, compliance, and risk management to create the security policies and architecture, processes, systems. Since cyber-security has become a key business priority there is no doubt, the role of CISO will become indispensable.
