Modern Assets Require a Disciplined, Step-by-Step Approach to Security
- Modern assets require extra diligence, especially around interconnected devices.
- Even with careful control over data access, there is still a need for regular, or continuous, vulnerability management, which is a weakness in many organizations.

Because FIS Global, where Dilip Panjwani serves as director of information security, provides various solutions and services to the financial industry, there is a large amount of customer information at risk, much of which needs to be accessed from mobile devices or the cloud. As a result, the company has implemented an extremely high level of security, especially around modern assets such as containerized applications. The process, says Panjwani, requires discipline and structure, particularly when it comes to interconnected devices.
