"Traditionally, cybersecurity teams are constrained to being just another part of the IT function," he says. "But if you look at some of the recent business fraud, they have had a strong link with cyber ... exploiting some cyber loopholes."

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Mumbai Security Summit, Dubey discusses:

  • Cross-channel fraud and cybersecurity silos;
  • Using UEBA to effectively address insider threat;
  • Best practices for mitigating technology-driven fraud.

Dubey, senior national manager in India at Forcepoint, has been heading the channels business for the last six years. A cybersecurity expert with over 21 years of experience in the IT industry, he formerly worked at Bluecoat, now Symantec; Sun Microsystems, now Oracle; Aventail Inc., now Sonicwall/Dell; Blue Star and Godrej & Boyce.
