CSO100 Award 2019

Prithwijit Dinda is the VP - IT at CDSL. He began his journey with the organization in 2001, and has been with CDSL for almost two decades. Overall, he has nearly three decades of extensive industry experience.


CDSL has implemented deception technology solution to monitor the CDSL network infrastructure in every single subnet, and also to cover the entire 'kill-chain' (life-cycle of an attack) on continuous 24X7 basis. It helps the organization detect the intent and behavior of an attacker, and is agnostic to attacker's methodology to remain effective against any new type of threat. It allows both human readable and machine readable export of threat intelligence in industry standard sharing formats. The ThreatPARSE natural language reconstruction automatically translates raw intelligence data into simple English, which is easier to handle with limited SOC resources.
