In order to speed up the resolution, they quickly established a joint venture with one of the major vendors of cyber security products. They also began with the investigation of their computer systems and data through a separate probe in order to determine any effect on the organization, its subsidiaries and others.
According to Live Mint, “Data protection and cybersecurity are of utmost importance to us. We are working with a leading cybersecurity products provider to resolve this at the earliest and have also launched an independent investigation with them to identify potential impact on systems and data,” said Infosys about the cyberattack.
Infosys is one leading technology company that has IMS, its subsidiary, which offers full fledged support in America. One of India’s largest corporate entities, Infosys has a considerable international presence and boasts of nearly three hundred thousand workforce.
