The significant increase in cyberattacks and accelerating digital transformation during the pandemic, along with recent regulatory guidance from the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) on cyber incident reporting has made it imperative for organizations to have a cyber incident response framework.
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India LLP (Deloitte India) and Palo Alto Networks are extending their relationship to offer comprehensive, end-to-end technology-based cyber incident response services to businesses in India. This collaboration combines Deloitte’s cyber incident response services with Palo Alto Networks’ Cortex XDR detection and response technology, designed to help organizations quickly contain and eradicate cyber attacks from the affected environment, limiting the impact of an attack on the company and to preserve the integrity of the data. and information technology/operational technology systems affected by the incident.
“We are excited to partner with Palo Alto Networks and together help transform the cyber incident response space. With cybersecurity incidents becoming more frequent and sophisticated, and with increased regulatory pressure, we foresaw the need for a smarter, faster and more comprehensive suite of services that would provide our customers with technologies and next-generation security. Our partnership with Palo Alto Networks confirms this commitment to our customers,” said Aloke Kumar Dani, Partner, Risk Management Consulting, Deloitte India.
“Organizations need effective detection and response across network, endpoint and cloud, but effectively managing today’s threats is a massive undertaking,” said Anil Valluri, Regional Vice President, India and SAARC at Palo Alto Networks. “This collaboration with Deloitte and Cortex XMDR will reassure customers that the services they choose will help mitigate security breaches and ease the daily burden of security operations with 24/7 coverage.”
Anand Tiwari, Partner, Risk Management Consulting, Deloitte India, added: “Developing a comprehensive cyber incident response plan to deal with the rapidly changing regulatory landscape is a daunting task. Taking an example of the recent directive published by CERT-In, which mandates compliance with regards to cybersecurity incidents, including a six-hour deadline for reporting (such incidents), a technology-based solution like ours can help customers to meet their growing compliance needs, relieving some of their pressure.
Deloitte’s cyber incident response services can help organizations prepare, respond and bounce back with speed and resilience. Deloitte India offers comprehensive incident response services including proactive services (Cyber Security Incident Response Planning [CSIRP] and development of manuals, tabletop exercises and simulations of cyber incidents) and reactive services (crisis management, privacy advice, forensic analysis and investigations). Deloitte India and Palo Alto Networks have extensive experience in handling some of the largest cyber breaches in the world, and their combined strengths will help organizations recover effectively and efficiently from cyber incidents.
Tom Barsi, Vice President, Cortex Ecosystems at Palo Alto Networks, said, “Collaborating with Deloitte India means joint customers will benefit from Deloitte’s cyber incident response services with Palo Alto Networks’ best-in-class Cortex XDR detection and response technology. As digitization continues to accelerate, this joint service offering will help address and resolve customers’ cybersecurity challenges, especially as the market demands new ways to detect and respond to threats. »
