Key security initiatives
Vipil Gupta, at The Indian Hotels Company, identified the need to adopt a proactive approach to security, rather than a reactive one. Instead of responding to threats after they strike, he found it important to keep such threats under check with a 24x7 security monitoring mechanism and analysis of suspicious activities across networks, servers, and databases. The IT security monitoring transformation project centered on a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool.
