GHD Digital – Cyber Critical Infrastructure and Risk

How secure is the invisible foundation that our modern society rests upon? In this thought-provoking episode of Tech Talks Daily, I’m joined by Kumar Parakala, President of GHD Digital, to unravel the complexities of protecting our critical infrastructure from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. As we delve into the digital age, our reliance on technology exposes vital systems—power plants, water facilities, and more—to cyber adversaries’ constantly evolving tactics. With a staggering 125% average annual increase in attacks on these essential networks, the conversation has never been more urgent.

Kumar brings expertise from leading GHD Digital initiatives, focusing on the nexus between technology and cybersecurity. He shares actionable insights on the societal shifts necessary to fortify our defenses, the role of digital transformation in bolstering security without compromising innovation, and how GHD Digital’s Cyber Critical Infrastructure and Risk Centre of Excellence is pioneering solutions to these pressing challenges. Furthermore, we’ll explore the double-edged sword of AI in cybersecurity—its power to detect and respond to threats and its potential to broaden the attack surface.

This episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in the future of cybersecurity and how we can collectively navigate the treacherous waters of digital threats. By understanding the intricacies of the landscape and the innovative approaches being developed, we can better appreciate the steps needed to ensure the resilience and security of our critical infrastructure.

One question looms as we confront these challenges: How can individuals, corporations, and governments collaborate more effectively to safeguard the digital and physical systems that underpin our society?
