Redesigning IT & Security strategy
Security is a major concern area which is being looked holistically, though there is nothing called end of opportunity to protect better.

1. To keep both external and internal perimeter safe and secured we have kept (a) separate external firewall (b) separate and different internal firewall which would make penetration a bit more complex (c) exclusive DMZ to keep intruders at bay.

2. For all endpoints and servers we have deployed state of the art, Crowdstrike EDR solution which has come of great use during this WFH

3. 24*7 SOC (Security Operating Centre) deployed and every log is being scrutinized for any lead on intrusion, this operates 24*7 round the clock.

4. Regular patch updates for Windows machines were done on a regular basis.
