DSCI Suc­cess­fully Con­cluded its 9th Best Prac­tices Meet on Cog­ni­tive Se­cu­rity in Bengaluru

With the ex­is­tence of plethora of struc­tured and un­struc­tured data, se­cu­rity threats are con­tin­u­ing to grow in vol­umes. To un­der­stand how the out­look to­wards cy­ber se­cu­rity in India needs a par­a­digm shift, DSCI or­ga­nized its ninth edi­tion of Best Prac­tice

Data Se­cu­rity Coun­cil of India (DSCI) or­ga­nized its ninth edi­tion of Best Prac­tices Meet (BPM) from 22-23 June. BPM is one of India’s fore­most events that fo­cuses on the con­tem­po­rary evo­lu­tion of var­ied as­pects of se­cu­rity. The evo­lu­tion of tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion and ap­proach to se­cu­rity to­wards ‘Cog­ni­tive Com­put­ing’ has in­spired this year’s theme as ‘Cog­ni­tive Se­cu­rity’.

With Cloud com­put­ing is per­me­at­ing into our lives and also trans­form­ing busi­ness mod­els- cases span­ning speech, im­age and voice recog­ni­tion and in­flu­enc­ing var­i­ous sce­nar­ios in health­care, e-com­merce, bank­ing and bio-in­for­mat­ics, among oth­ers, cy­ber se­cu­rity is seen to be tap­ping onto the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence, Ma­chine and Deep Learn­ing. With this back­drop, BPM agenda fo­cused on con­tem­po­rary evo­lu­tion in se­cu­rity un­der­scor­ing the em­pha­sis on adop­tion of cog­ni­tive and data driven tech­nolo­gies, tech­niques and so­lu­tions and dis­cus­sions around the chal­lenges brought forth. Key top­ics de­lib­er­ated dur­ing the two day con­fer­ence

in­cluded Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence, Ma­chine Learn­ing, Au­to­mo­tive Se­cu­rity, SOCs are tran­si­tion­ing to Cy­ber De­fense, Cy­ber­crime In­ves­ti­ga­tion, Cog­ni­tive Risk Frame­work and more.

To en­able fo­cused dis­cus­sions on on­go­ing chal­lenges faced by the in­dus­try, DSCI or­ga­nized work­shops on Mal­ware Foren­sics, Cy­ber In­sur­ance, Data Science, Gen­eral Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR) Im­ple­men­ta­tion, Prod­uct Se­cu­rity & DevSecOps, In­di­ca­tors of Com­pro­mise & At­tacks and oth­ers. Along with some in­trigu­ing ses­sion on Pri­vacy in Iden­tity sys­tems and pol­icy ex­pec­ta­tions in the area of Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence, blockchain, en­cryp­tion etc, the con­fer­ence wit­nessed se­cu­rity star­tups show­cas­ing cut­ting-edge ca­pa­bil­i­ties and set­ting new bench­marks for in­no­va­tion in India in the do­main.

Gopal Pil­lai, Chair­man, DSCI dur­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion said, “India is wit­ness­ing an un­prece­dented wave of Dig­i­tal­iza­tion. Gov­ern­ment both cen­tral and state with their ini­tia­tives in­clud­ing Dig­i­tal India and Smart cities are poised to trans­form the pub­lic ser­vice de­liv­ery. At this junc­ture, it is im­por­tant that In­dus­try step-up its com­pe­ten­cies and de­liv­ery ca­pa­bil­i­ties to meet the ex­pec­ta­tions of Gov­ern­ment and En­ter­prises as a whole.” He also added, “Con­fer­ences like these help in bring­ing stake­hold­ers to­gether to de­lib­er­ate on the per­spec­tives and ex­pec­ta­tions lead­ing to ac­tion­able out­comes.”

Ex­press­ing her thoughts at the con­fer­ence Rama Vedashree, CEO, DSCI said, “With the rapidly evolv­ing tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion land­scape, our ap­proach to se­cu­rity needs a par­a­digm shift. The out­look to­wards cy­ber se­cu­rity in India is seen tran­si­tion­ing from re­ac­tive risk mit­i­ga­tion ap­proach to a more holis­tic readi­ness to pro­tect against the escalating cy­ber threat land­scape. We are al­ready wit­ness­ing man­age­ment at­ten­tion to cy­ber se­cu­rity at the level of PMO in Gov­ern­ment, and board level in the in­dus­try. In our en­deavor to step up India’s readi­ness and es­tab­lish­ing ro­bust se­cu­rity dis­ci­pline, there can­not be a more perti­nent time to have in­dus­try level dis­cus­sion about ‘ Cog­ni­tive Se­cu­rity’ which is emerg­ing as a found­ing block of many con­tem­po­rary se­cu­rity ca­pa­bil­i­ties. We are glad to see the over­whelm­ing re­sponse on the sub­ject.”

Talk­ing about the tech­nolo­gies and so­lu­tions in this space she said, “though the mar­ket to­day is at nascent stage, but we see that chang­ing over the next few years with star­tups play­ing a key role.”
