Amit Basu, vice president, CIO, CISO, International Seaways Inc.

Like his peer CISOs, Amit Basu of International Seaways is concerned about complexity and the shifting landscape. But not just the threat landscape - he also is challenged by the shifting dynamics of business priorities and processes, as well as what "protection" in this new environment now entails.

In an interview with Information Security Media Group as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profiles in Leadership series, Basu discusses:

  • The changing threat and business landscapes;
  • What "protection" means today;
  • How to manage the increasing complexity of the security stack.
