Profiles in Leadership: Amit Basu, International SeawaysNavigating Cybersecurity Through Dynamic Shifts in Threats, Processes, Priorities
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.
Basu is the CIO and CISO at International Seaways, a New York-based tanker company that provides energy transportation services for crude oil and petroleum products worldwide. He has over 30 years of IT experience and almost 25 years of experience in maritime IT leadership roles. Prior to INSW, he served as CIO at Overseas Shipholding Group from 2013 to 2016.
