Business Continuity in a New EnvironmentTata Digital's Anish Ravindranathan on Issues Emerging During COVID-19 Crisis
As companies deal with a remote workforce as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, they face serious business continuity issues, regardless of whether their applications operate in the cloud or on the company's own servers, says Anish Ravindranathan, security and cloud architect at Tata Digital.
A key component of business continuity, he says, is making sure a VPN can handle the increased capacity while maintaining security - and that means making sure VPN backup provisions are in place, Ravindranathan says in an interview with Information Security Media Group. He describes different approaches for the cloud and on premises application environments.
In this interview (see audio link below photo), Ravindranathan also discusses:
- Planning a security strategy for a remote workforce;
- Improving cloud security;
- Managing active and passive VPNs;
- Dealing with the threat of phishing attacks.
Ravindranathan, security and cloud architect at Tata Digital, previously led cybersecurity incident response at General Mills. He has directed his team through tactical response procedures to prioritize, detect, analyze and investigate cybersecurity incidents.
