Some of top Indian companies CEO talks about on demand of Cyber Security

  • Sunil, CEO of Team Lease Digital, says “The demand for cyber security has increased by 15%. There were a lot of people already in need of cyber security services. In the meantime, this covid-19 epidemic has increased, and the demand is now growing, especially for IT services serving Big Four consulting firms and the PFSI sector.”
  • Anand Ramakrishnan, CEO of QTech Systems, says “that although cyber security is a priority for companies after the lockdown is over, the nature of the job is different from that of the work-from-home model. The need for people with more knowledge of detection and answering and video conferencing up until the last point needed to be protected is high.”
  • Rajesh Gopinathan CEO of TCS , “We have already completed their security infrastructure in the home-to-work program. We have restructured our cyber security structures and ensured proper workflow, task monitoring and reporting through all our project management practices and systems.”
  • Salil Parekh CEO of Infosys , “Infosys has placed greater emphasis on cyber security in delivering work-from-home plans. The thing we are most concerned about is security. Whatever we do, we want to be clear that cyber security is taking into account where we are going to be. ”


Previously, endpoint security was limited to anti-virus or anti-virus solutions, and they were increasingly ‘block chain’ software. There is no standard monitoring and threat analysis. Now, all these endpoints sitting in different homes are becoming targets, refer to remote devices in the corporate network, such as laptops or other wireless and mobile devices.  So there needs to be constant monitoring.

So the nature of IT security will change a little bit. Because of this, there is much future for cyber security tasks in the present situation. So this is the future. Don’t give up on this
