Information security probably doesn\u2019t receive a lot of enterprise attention because it is seen as the responsibility of the CIO. But asserting that this is a matter for the people above the CIO, Rajendra Pawar, Chairman, NIIT Limited wondered, \u201cEvery so often, surfing the news about the latest cyber breaches elevates my blood pressure as I wonder\u2014could that happen to me? How can it impact my business? How shall I respond to my customers and shareholders?\u201dSo far, enterprises have sought to protect themselves through anti-virus software and limiting access to crucial company information\u2014but this is not enough. Sahir Hidayatullah, CEO of Smokescreen Technologies said, \u201cEvery day, thousands of systems are compromised. Most frequently, they are attacked to steal information, money or corporate secrets.\u201dWhile most companies may be lax, banks are extra cautious. Paresh Sukthankar, Deputy Managing Director, HDFC Bank, said that banks are supposed to be trustworthy organizations; thus, cyber security has always been a major concern for them. "Banking is one industry that has seen technology growing rapidly and is now far more aware and better prepared for cyber-attacks," he said.But most organizations don\u2019t usually give it any thought until there\u2019s a severe incident--and then they get into damage-control mode, stated Gary Loveland, Global cyber security CoE leader, PwC.\u00a0\u201cOrganizations having a reactive approach to cyber-attacks even though the question is not if a company will suffer an incident, but when,\u201d he said.Summing up, all the speakers felt that information security deserves full attention at the highest levels of the company.
