The post-COVID-19 workplace is going to be radically different—many employees will work from home. This transition from a physical to a virtual work environment makes it imperative to safeguard and protect the technologies that enable modern businesses. Ajay makes the case for moving cyber risk from a back-office IT function to a business risk that needs to be owned and managed at the executive level. Becoming CyberStrong is a team sport and Ajay’s explanation of cyber risks are easy to understand for non-technical business managers to get on board.
Ajay has very lucidly yet comprehensively talked about one of the biggest invisible adversaries corporations face in the digital era. Ajay’s deep experience in leading a technology organization and his current pursuit have gifted us this knowledge that is relevant to all leaders in current times.
From large companies to fast growing technology-led start-ups, business leaders remain poorly equipped to define and assess their cyber security readiness. It often ends badly with the management team in a full-blown crisis situation relating to customer confidence, data loss, legal exposure and loss of service. This book is an essential read for business leaders as they lead organizations in a digital age.
Cyber risk is a key business risk. Since it goes beyond the information technology department, it is absolutely essential that non-technical managers and line staff be trained in understanding this risk and its mitigation. This book is an important contribution towards that. Written in a simple, non-technical fashion, it will be easy to read and understand for all managers and staff.
Like cricket, writing a book is all about ‘timing’. Ajay’s exquisite cover drive exposing gaps in the ‘cyber security fielding’ of internet users is an elegant display of his skills. The recent events have made the internet and exposure to the cyber world commonplace and ubiquitous. This primer is as essential as the helmet and the guards for the business manager and for you and me. A must-read for all.
Some subjects that are contemporary and absolutely relevant for the times that we are in face serious challenges in application. And I feel one very strong reason for the same is the lack of good literature and source of conceptual clarity that becomes the building block for such applications.
This book gives extensive coverage on how organizations can keep themselves protected from cyber threats. It will enable you to turn a risk into advantage. It discusses topics ranging from identifying cyber threats and vulnerabilities to understanding cyber risks and managing cyber risks. Author has structured the contents very well and has included real-life examples. This book can be useful to business leaders, IT professionals and law-enforcing authorities.

As organizations embrace digital transformation journeys, cyber threats are emerging as the biggest business challenge. COVID-19 times have seen huge surge in cyber-attacks and ransomware attacks in diverse industries such as banks and healthcare. Now cyber security has moved from the IT realm to board room discussions, wherein policies and strategies need to be formulated for cyber-risk management. In this context, this book provides invaluable insights to empower board members, business leaders and managers with basic knowledge to build a resilient and cyber strong organization.
