Cyber Security BSE ties up with Lucideus
Lucideus will provide a cybersecurity operations centre (SOC) using artificial intelligence and machine learning-backed Security Assessment Framework for Enterprises (SAFE) platform/solution, BSE said in a release. Last month, Sebi had asked market infrastructure institutions to set up round-the-clock cybersecurity operation centre manned by dedicated security analysts to identify, respond and prevent cyberattacks.
"The on-premise box solution will host open-source tools along with the SAFE software that will aggregate insights from each terminal and sense the network security controls to send them along with the syslogs to SAFE to be processed in real-time," it said.
"By associating with Lucideus, we aim to strengthen the cybersecurity framework, tackle all the challenges pertaining to capital markets ecosystem and adhere to Sebi's guidelines to protect the integrity of data and guard against breaches of privacy," BSE Chairman S Ravi said.
Lucideus aims to make cyber risk an informed business decision such that it will allow the security team to communicate to the non-tech specialists like business unit leaders and board about the cybersecurity posture of the enterprise, said Lucideus CEO and co-founder Saket Modi.
