Puneet Kukreja, EY Partner and UK & Ireland Cyber Leader

Cybersecurity leaders would remember the disclosure of a trove of confidential documents by Russian cybersecurity contractor firm Vulkan that decrypted the plans of the country's military and intelligence entities in leveraging their cyberwarfare capabilities. The documents that originated from Vulcan provided insights into the collaborative efforts between intelligence agencies and private enterprises in orchestrating large-scale hacking campaigns on a global scale.

Puneet Kukreja, EY Partner and UK & Ireland Cyber Leader, sheds light on the intricate web of cyberthreats, strategies for resilience and the evolving landscape of digital protection.

"We're aware of existing technologies and their potential to cause cyber breaches. The key focus lies in comprehending the blueprint of such breaches, making it a valuable knowledge base for organizations," Kukreja said.

In this video interview with ISMG, Kukreja discussed:

  • Precautions for safeguarding businesses in an era of kinetic cyberwar;
  • The "assumed breach" mindset to safeguard digital assets;
  • The importance of acquiring non-technical skills to strengthen cybersecurity.

Kukreja is experienced in building client-centric, growth-focused high-performing delivery organizations that are engineering-led and powered by managed services.
