NITYANAND SHETTY, ESSEN VISION
Nityanand Shetty from Essen Vision shared a thought, for which we can think, that was to identify security management and set it in place. He quoted that the business world is increasingly reliant on technology to supply information and communications facilities to staff, partners, and customers. Securing organizational information and the systems that are used to manage and transmit data has become a high profile function. Failure to secure information can have a severe impact on business credibility.
He also mentioned about the threats to an organization which come in a variety of forms, for example from hacking, viruses, and simple human error. The types of threats change constantly, so management must sponsor, design, and implement business and technical processes to safeguard critical business assets. To create a more secure business environment the organization must: Assess business exposure and identify which assets to secure. Identify ways to reduce risk to an acceptable level. Design a plan for mitigating security risks. Monitor the efficiency of security mechanisms. Re-evaluate effectiveness and security requirements regularly. According to Nityanand Shetty all of these activities must be coordinated within a well-defined strategy. An organization can manage risk to an acceptable level by developing security policies and making staff and commercial partners aware of their responsibilities within them. Security can also contribute to an organization’s bottom line, because customers value the reliability of a supplier.
SURESH RAMANI, TECHGYAN
‘Corporate Giving,’ ‘ Corporate Citizenship’ and ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (CSR) are popular concepts which have become integral to the businesses of several large and small companies around the world. These concepts intend to provide donations, long-term financial grants, non-financial support and even mutually beneficial partnerships to address social problems around the world. In such a context, NGOs have a strong potential look upon them as a one of the important sources of funding.
Corporate like Suresh Ramani from Techgyan, Mumbai is working on software for poor children with the help of NGOs; their main idea is to literate the poor class through different software mediums which are easy to understand and less time consuming. It works to support the next generation of change maker by integrating innovative, values-based business practices, we contribute to the growth and sustainability of the company, produce social, environmental and economic benefits for communities, enhance the company’s reputation.
The organization helps train local community members, teachers, Children. They also work on the Central belief that, “that ‘literacy’ is what one acquires in school, but ‘education’ is what one gains from family, traditions, culture, environment and personal experience. In addition to its educational efforts, the organization also seeks to demystify and decentralize technology use, promote female empowerment, and develop villages from the inside out–rather than vice-versa.
Not all major corporations have social responsibility programs and not all of them provide funding for NGOs to address various issues and problems of our society. The few corporations which have grant programs are too cautious to openly come out with strong commitments for rendering any kind of funding support. Such corporations do declare that they have community welfare programs but they do not seem to exist beyond their websites and publicity brochures.
