Key security initiatives:
Rajeev Prakash Verma was responsible for deploying customized, in-house solutions for business requirements around information security. There was a need for a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution with geo fencing. However, the challenge lay in auto-enrolling every device as soon as a person enters the office. As SRF embraced BYOD, users needed to have control on their mobile phones when they left the organization. Additionally, the company also had to devise information rights management to bring in data loss prevention. Verma played a key role in setting up digital signatures with email gateway. All critical emails with invoice or quotes goes signed to vendors, following DS validation on the gateway to avoid fake emails or invoices. Verma helped SRF move to zero paper in appraisal cycles. All DD’s are now digitally signed and protected for the individual using IRM. The entire appraisal process has now been automated and made secure.
