Cyber Excellence


With rapid technological advancements and increased digital adoption, organisations are exposed to complex variations of cyber-attacks. Traditional Cyber Security practices established when data, IT infrastructure, and Applications were located within a company's four walls are inadequate today. The adoption of the Cloud, boundary-less networks, and connected devices has further increased the threat surface and exposed organizations to newer risks. Hence Cyber risk is now established as a critical enterprise risk. In a group like ours, where companies of varying size, scale, and geographic spread of operation in a diverse set of industries, brought together under a common brand name, assurance on adequate and relevant Cyber Security controls is paramount. Therefore, a common framework that can standardize and help companies achieve best-in-class Cyber Security implementation is required.

Tata Business Excellence Group (TBExG), along with Group Digital Office, evaluated multiple frameworks and selected the TCS Blue Tick framework based on parameters such as comprehensiveness, compatibility across industries, simplicity, and the ability to identify critical safeguards which will help the Group companies develop its Cyber Security roadmap. TCS Blue Tick is a framework based on popular standards like CIS v8, NIST, Cloud Control Matrix v4, and TCS' framework for OT, Privacy, and Leadership.

The Tata Cyber Excellence Programme aims the following:

  1. Establish a common framework to standardize Cyber Security practices in the Group.
  2. Help Group companies with Cyber Excellence assessment and build a roadmap to reach a higher level of
  3. excellence.
  4. Create awareness of Cyber Security risks.
  5. Capture and monitor Cyber Security posture of the Group companies.
  6. Enable Best Practices sharing on Cyber Excellence processes.
