The Covid-19 induced global disruptions coupled with data breaches taking place around the world have forced InfoSec leaders to find new ways to address the cybersecurity challenges in securing the distributed work environment and safeguarding mission-critical services that are in process of moving to the cloud. For organizations to have better visibility and a robust security posture, cybersecurity is no longer an option but a high priority necessity.

Experts believe that as always, the new security challenges will put the InfoSec leaders and CISOs in a critical position as they traverse the unknown path of new security threats and data breaches. As we prepare for the 'next normal' after a period of unprecedented disruptions, we must consolidate on the latest rapid adoption in cybersecurity technologies and learn from past mistakes.

The InfoSec leaders and CISOs have always embraced the latest cybersecurity technologies and delivered the results. In every situation, whether it is about -- keeping pace with evolving threat landscapes, adopting AI and ML to enhance cybersecurity capabilities, securing cloud infrastructure, fortifying digital transformation strategy for post-Covid operations, prioritising and integration of governance, risk and compliance in the 'new normal', delivering an agile SOC, or adopting zero trust approach to security -- the cyber warriors have always stood against the invisible adversaries and proved their mettle.

BitStream Mediaworks has been holding an annual awards ceremony (Defenders 100) for the past two years, honouring the top InfoSec leaders and CISOs by well-known industry luminaries. For this year also, we intend to felicitate 100 elite CISOs and InfoSec leaders of India who have given their best to make their organizations secure and cyber resilient. This year, come October, and we will be holding the award function on a very interactive virtual platform.

As always, the awards will be preceded by a multitude of knowledge-packed sessions (Virtual CISO | Connect Summit) to trigger thought-leading innovations to bring India's 800+ CISOs, CTOs, CROs, CIOs, IT Heads, InfoSec leaders and managers from private, public and govt organizations and global security experts under one roof to discuss various information security threats and best-possible effective intelligent solutions available.
