CIO Perspectives

The Pandemic triggered digital and remote working making Cyber Security one of the top priorities for organizations. In this context, tell us briefly how your organization managed the transition to remote working during the pandemic? How did you manage employees logging into the corporate network or accessing critical resources and remain protected from cyber-attacks? Tell us about some of the unique security best practices that you have implemented to protect your organization against cyber-attacks?

During the pandemic, at Energypac, we ensured secure private VPN for remote access. As our entire landscape is hosted in Microsoft Azure, we made site to site tunneling between cloud infra and on prem- corporate network. Users were also protected with Kaspersky end point security. Our in-house network security team was vigilant all through the transition phase until the users got fully accustomed to the new normal.

With respect to cyber security measures, we have firewall for network security protection and are also using Barracuda email security system. To prevent phishing attack, we rigorously train our users to manage self-security by controlling their internet and email interactions.
