In an interview with the Telangana Today, Niranjan Chintam, Chairman, Kellton Tech shared his views on how cyber security has become a top priority for the digital transformation journey of a modern enterprise.
He also served a word of caution to the enterprises, stating that "a renewed attack with more sophisticated code could be possible." The impact is minimal; however, the healthcare and finance sectors have suffered the most.

He also expressed his disappointment with the current cyber security standards in India.  He feels “both government and IT community have a shared responsibility in educating people about the pitfalls of inadequate security consciousness.”

As a company, Kellton Tech’s team was closely watching the developments of this cyber-attack. an email alert was sent to all employees about the outbreak, and precautionary measures were implemented to safeguard the company’s IT infrastructure.

Today, we live in a connected world due to the widespread adoption of the Internet of Things; hence, any kind of cyber-attack can affect the global IT systems rapidly. Therefore, we must be on the top of vulnerabilities and be thoroughly prepared for any eventuality.
