Shift To Work-from-home Underscores Need For New Cybersecurity Architecture: National Cyber Security Coordinator

Pant said the pandemic has, in a sense, brought in some bit of “deglobalisation” that would impact the fractured cyberspace for some time to come.

NEW DELHI: The emergence of work-from-home culture has triggered fresh dynamics and challenges, and underscored the need for new type of cybersecurity architecture, National Cyber Security Coordinator Rajesh Pant said on Tuesday.

He also emphasised the need for international collaboration, given the borderless nature of cyberattacks.

The accelerated shift to work-from-home and remote work environments have put the spotlight on IT security of end-point equipments at homes, user identity, robustness of home network, cloud services, antivirus, and apps that are being used by individuals.

“The entire system has become distributed. So a new type of cybersecurity architecture is now required for this,” Pant said.

He was speaking at an online discussion on ‘Cyber-resilience in the new normal: risks and new approaches’, organised by cybersecurity company Kaspersky.
