A Step towards Securing Information



In today’s world, where every day new technology is introduced to mankind, in the hands of a wrong individual or organization, it may turn fatal. For national security, it is essential that the defence sector must have adequate measures to prevent any information theft, unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, inspection and destruction of information. Also, the large corporate houses and IT companies seek to protect valuable information concerning their assets, internal policies, liabilities, resources etc. Maintining the privacy of an individual or an organization is crucial in a time when cyber security has become a matter of primary importance. In order to address the issues concerning Information Security, Brainware University organized a one-day seminar on “Contemporary Issues in the Area of Information Security,” on January 24, 2018, at Barasat campus. The seminar, which was attended by the faculty members of Brainware University, began at 11 a.m. Mr. Sinchan Banerjee of The Linde Group was the guest speaker, who talked about various aspects of Information Security, and provided important information on the current trends in this area, as well as new methods employed by hackers, terrorists etc. to extract information wrongfully. The seminar was a stepping stone towards achieving a bigger dream for the university, that of establishing an academic department of Information security in near future.
