Shrenik Bhayani, GM, Kaspersky Lab (South Asia), said, “The CISO Summit is an extremely important stage for all of us in the information security sector. Not only does it allow us to meet our colleagues, but helps us address the grave challenges that we need to counter. At Kaspersky, we have immense experience of Threat Management, having achieved 100% success rate with zero false positives for advance threats last quarter. The key to our success has been in staying ahead of the game and foreseeing problems that probably don’t even exist right now. It was a very fulfilling session and we gained immense insight from hearing our contemporaries speak, too.”
