Improving Threat Information SharingTata Commmunications' Avinash Prasad on the Need for a Structured Approach
Although there are many options for threat information sharing, there are not enough initiatives that are properly codified and defined so that enterprises can easily share relevant information with a business context in a structured and timely manner, says Avinash Prasad of Tata Communications (see: India's Information-Sharing Challenge).
"One can do operations well and have all sorts of service provider contracts. But the right information at the right time, in the right context around a threat can make a lot of difference," says Prasad, Tata's vice president and head of the managed security services business (see: Congress Set to Enact Cyberthreat Information-Sharing Law).
- Lessons from information sharing efforts around the world;
- The vital importance of business context and domain-specific threat information;
- The role all industry stakeholders - individual practitioners and enterprises - play in information sharing.
Prasad heads the business area of managed security services globally for Tata Communications. He has a multi-functional focus on customer management, practice and solution development, business development, innovation and partnership. He previously served in leadership roles at Wipro and Infosys.
