Every industry has undergone a massive transformation in the recent years, especially after the pandemic. From moving their entire operations online to managing all their resources remotely, businesses have had to change almost everything. But there is one area that many seem to be missing out on even though it demands more attention than ever in this post pandemic era cyber security. As an outcome of the accelerated digital business, many digital assets have been placed outside organizations’ traditional infrastructure, exposing them to more threats. As per a Gartner report and other research suggests that, cyber security and regulatory compliance are the two biggest concerns of corporate boards, and hence, some of them are bringing cyber security experts onboard specifically to scrutinize security and risk issues. In such a scenario, Canum Infotech is rightly positioned to address businesses’ needs around cyber security and compliance. The company helps businesses strike a balance between security and continuous compliance.
Canum Infotech employs artificial intelligence, blockchain and machine learning to address the security challenges concerning anything around securing digital apps, infrastructure and data including IT service management, process automation, data analytics to future technology systems in making.

What are the different challenges faced by businesses with regards to ensuring complete security against any threats and staying compliant with the regulatory standards? Also tell us about the way Canum Infotech addresses those challenges.
The most common challenge prevailing in this space is that businesses have different cyber security and compliance practices in place that are used in silos. However, to make the most of these technologies, we need to strike a balance between the two and use them in a synchronized manner. This is a great opportunity to leverage the power of both to secure our digital ecosystems. So, we focus on bringing these two together and making use of the capability. For example, there are many scenarios where there is a compliance requirement, which drives the security systemsdesign and implementation. In such cases, our approach proves to be of significant strategic value driving ROI.
One of the most impact factors for us is to manage compliance first and then emphasize security. If a business does
n’t have its requirement specification in place, its design will be loosely coupled, inherit adhoc approaches applied to secure the enterprise ecosystem and will lead to problems during implementation as well as operations. Hence, we recommend having a requirement specification in the beginning. This is the key which we need to formulate and one size does not fit all. However we have well defined standards, frameworks, guidelines and best practices to guide and have the adequate level of requirements. Regulatory frame works also need to be considered in this process as applicable.
