With 19 years of experience in computer networks and cyber security, Yask Sharma holds a master's in Cyber Security and Cyber Law from National Law University Jodhpur. Yask Sharma joined the Indian Oil Corporation in 1999. He is currently the chief manager of information systems and CISO at IOCL. Key Security Initiative: A centralized security operation center was set up at the Indian Oil Corporation to get visibility of the network and any security related issues across the corporation. The main challenge was augmenting the MPLS bandwidth since logs of huge quantums were being gathered and processed at a single location. IOC implemented an SIEM solution through which the organization had network visibility from all 700+ locations across India, and this helped in looking into and mitigating all possible threat vectors.
