Data Recovery and Cyber Resiliency: A Business ImperativeRubrik's Abhilash Purushothaman Recommends an "Assumed Breach" Security Posture
According to a report by ExtraHop, 83% of organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were victims of a ransomware attack at least once in the past three to five years. Of them, only 32% made a public disclosure of the cyberattack.
Southeast Asia and India were the worst-hit regions in APAC last year. This highlights the urgency of enabling cyber resiliency and data recovery in an organization. With the growing reliance on digital technologies and the escalating sophistication of cyberthreats, organizations are recognizing the need to be prepared for potential cyber incidents and establish the ability to recover from them.
"The conventional approach to prevent attacks needs to be replaced by a modern approach of cyber resilience. CIOs and CISOs need to bring infrastructure and data security together and cover them with an end-to-end zero trust framework," said Abhilash Purushothaman, vice president and general manager, Asia region, at Rubrik.
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Purushothaman discussed:
- The criticality of protecting data backups;
- The importance of "assumed breach" security posture;
- The application of AI/ML to detect anomalies.
Purushothaman is responsible for all go-to-market functions across Asia including Southeast Asia, India, Korea, Hong Kong and China. Prior to Rubrik, he led the business for AppDynamics where he built and grew India, ASEAN and Greater China markets.
