Grant Thornton Bharat has established a cutting-edge Cyber Vigilance Centre (CVC) in Gurgaon, to provide clients with 360-degree cyber protection. Cyber threats have become recurrent with attackers finding innovative ways to inflict damage across businesses and industries. In 2021, cybercrimes and ransomware attacks increased significantly, inflicting approximate damages of USD 6 trillion, globally. Grant Thornton Bharat’s proactive, intelligent and state-of-the-art cyber fusion centre, will help clients build cyber resilience.

Commenting on the same, Vishesh C. Chandiok, CEO, Grant Thornton Bharat said, “The pandemic has accelerated digitisation across sectors. Transformation that was to happen over a decade, happened in under three years, bringing with it a heightened risk of cyberattacks. We are seeing an increase in cyberattacks, almost on a weekly basis. To protect companies against such attacks and prevent loss of revenue and reputation, we have set up a Cyber Vigilance Centre in the National Capital Region. Aligned to our purpose of shaping a vibrant and safe Bharat, the centre will assist companies and the Government in identifying and mitigating cyber risks.”

“The CVC is based on local as well as worldwide leading practices and will assist our customers in managing their cyber risk and compliance requirements. The right blend of technology, standardised processes and skilled incident handlers will assist in early threat detection, bring actionable intelligence to the table, assist in cyber compliance and thereby reduce the probability of any future impact”, said Akshay Garkel, Partner and Cyber Leader at Grant Thornton Bharat.

The centre offers a modular and flexible catalogue of cyber vigilance services. The Firm’s skilled professionals & incident responders are equipped to support clients during any stage of the attack. Regulators and government agencies have established stringent requirements, mandating organisations to ensure adequate safeguards against cyberattacks thereby protecting customer interest.
