Hyderabad, 7 October 2022: National Miner NMDC conducted a Talk on Cyber Security Awareness at its Head Office in Hyderabad today. The company is observing National Cyber Security Awareness Month celebrated in October every year by public and private companies together to enhance the overall resilience of the country. NMDC’s CMD Shri Sumit Deb and Director (Finance) Shri Amitava Mukherjee encouraged the building of a secure cyber infrastructure at NMDC while Shri Krishna Sastry P, Partner, E&Y delivered the Keynote Address.
Shri Krishna Sastry P presented statistics on global cost of cybercrime and next generation attacks. He highlighted the need to build cyber discipline in individuals, organizations, and nations. Addressing NMDC officials, he said, “As NMDC builds its digital infrastructure, cyber security will play a pivotal role going forward.
