GK Pillai, Chairman, DSCI said “Against the backdrop of increasingly complex and sophisticated cyber-attacks, it is even more important that leaders from financial security domain and security industry collaborate and partner to mitigate the threats. In the first year itself, FinSec Conclave has become a knowledge sharing platform for banking institutions, digital payment organisations, Fintech start-ups, non-banking financial companies.”

He further said, “Boards of Financial companies need to regularly review the state of cyber risks and take action to mitigate and respond from cyber-attacks.”

Debjani Ghosh, President, NASSCOM said “As merchants and consumers become digital-first, India’s payments economy continues to grow from strength-to-strength. With millions of Indians moving online, fintech have catalysed rapid innovation by paving the way for financial inclusion. In this scenario, it is crucial to maintain the integrity of user data and build digital security awareness among citizens. Ultimately, the prime imperative for a successful digital transition will be to develop security infrastructure that is congruent with the pace of change.”

Rama Vedashree, CEO, DSCI said “Amidst the technological flux and potential of digital is the steadfast challenge of ensuring Safety & Security of the BFSI sector at an enterprise and country level.

It is imperative for the BFSI sector to stay hyper-vigilant and evolve its Cyber Security & Privacy agenda to safeguard against the malicious elements that are continually trying to attack the systems and inflict damage, even cripple the economy. The conclave had the rich discussion on several contemporary and emerging business and technology trends that we are witnessing in the domain and its innovation landscape.”
