CIS interviews Shantanu Ghosh, Managing Director, Symantec Product Operations, India, as part of the Cybersecurity Series.

“Remember that India is also a land where there are a lot of people who are beginning to use computing devices for the first time in their lives. For many people, their smartphone is their first computing device because they have never had computers in the past. For them, the challenge is how do you make sure that they understand that that can be a threat too. It can be a threat not only to their bank accounts, with their financial information, but even to their private lives.”

Centre for Internet and Society presents its twenty fourth installment of the CIS Cybersecurity Series.”

The CIS Cybersecurity Series seeks to address hotly debated aspects of cybersecurity and hopes to encourage wider public discourse around the topic.

Shantanu Ghosh is the Managing Director of Symantec Product Operations, India. He also runs the Data Centre Security Group for Symantec globally.

This work was carried out as part of the Cyber Stewards Network with aid of a grant from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada.
