KEY SECURITY INITIATIVES

The company is working on a whole host of technologies including IoT, AI, machine learning, telematics, bots and big data. Srikanth S, the man spearheading TVS- cybersecurity drive identified IoT, data management and connected vehicles as the biggest challenges to cybersecurity. Given the rapid influx of connected vehicles, CSOs across the automotive space have identified IoT and connected components as a worrisome vulnerability.

The implementation drastically reduced manpower, time and cost.
