CISO Can Help Innovate and Not Just Fight Cyber Threats: Ratan Jyoti, Ujjivan Small Finance Bank
https://www.dynamicciso.com/
March 27, 2019
“It is said that learning is the superpower of superpowers and continuous learning motivates and inspires me more than anything else and helps me carrying out my own research,” quips Jyoti as he recalls the starting point of his learning process – his first job, which a data warehouse project that involved work related to databases and programming. He was too particular about exception handling and validation in his programming and gradually realized that absence of validation could provide him access to websites and databases within. Slowly he started analyzing websites for their robustness and the process became a puzzle solving exercise for him and he started learning by himself. At that time there were not many tools available and each website taught him a unique way to penetrate. While he failed many a times, he became successful some of the times and could access what he calls the treasure, i.e. the data.

July 25, 2018
We have not faced any security risks recently. The banking system, in general, is facing many security challenges. New technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) or IIoT are giving cybercriminals ample opportunities and platforms to launch more sophisticated attacks on banks. Banks and Financial sector firms intertwine services from multiple vendors and other third parties and these pose significant cyber risks. International cyber-attacks are another area of concern. The emergence of mobile banking is bringing new threats. With BYOD and mobile devices, the opportunity for infected devices to connect to a network has dramatically increased.
