West PSU Tech Symposium
14th September 2023
Embracing the digital age and Forging new frontiers for PSUs
a premier publication on public policy and governance from Sri Adhikari Brothers Group, is organizing its First West PSU Tech Symposium on 14th September 2023 at Mumbai.
In the past seven editions of the PSU IT Forums, Governance Now has successfully engaged IT experts from India's top PSUs. Now, we are expanding our reach to engage with zone-wise state and central PSUs, as well as technology solution providers, to address the digital transformation needs.
Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), both at the central and state levels, have played a crucial role in the industrialization and overall development of India. These PSUs were established with the objective of achieving self-sufficiency in manufacturing and technology. The government has been at the forefront of digitization initiatives aimed at increasing productivity, driving efficiency, and improving citizen services. Modern digital technologies have a vital role in enabling these initiatives.
Today, technology has become a significant enabler for businesses across all sectors, including the public and private sectors. It plays a highly insightful role in driving optimization and efficiency. Progressive technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning, and augmented reality have contributed to sustained growth within the public sector. Automation and digitization of services have led to significant social, economic, technological, and environmental outcomes. The role of technology in government and the public sector is to enhance various processes and improve overall performance.
In today's rapidly evolving landscape, cybersecurity has transitioned from being a choice to becoming an absolute necessity. Government agencies and Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) have emerged as prime targets for malicious actors. Therefore, it is imperative not only to consider but also to embrace emerging technologies for enhanced security. It is vital to leverage every available advantage in order to disrupt potential attack paths and fortify overall security posture.
To effectively mitigate cyber risks, gaining comprehensive visibility across the entire network is paramount. This visibility allows for a better understanding of potential vulnerabilities, enabling prompt prioritization and remediation. The increasing reliance on digital technologies in day-to-day operations has introduced significant challenges in the domains of cyber and network security. Consequently, organizations must prioritize the development of robust security architectures. As IT infrastructures are modernized, security considerations should be placed at the forefront of decision-making processes, ensuring a proactive and holistic approach to safeguarding critical assets.
