Amrit Sethi, veteran cyber-security advisor and Associate Partner at KPMG, has been appointed as the Group Head for Cyber Security at the Adani Group.
Sethi moves to Adani after a 10-year stint as an Associate Partner at KPMG India – one of the country’s Big Four accounting and advisory firms.
As part of the firm’s digital trust practice, Sethi led cyber transformation at KPMG. In addition to being responsible for delivery and engagement with the firm’s customers, he was charged with managing operations for KPMG’s Global Security Operations Centre.
Also, he played the role of a strategic advisor to CIOs in the country and has supported India’s largest privately-owned crude-oil producer and the world’s largest FMCG Company as part of his professional engagements during his decade-long tenure at KPMG.
Sethi held leadership positions at IBM and Indian pharmaceutical major, Ranbaxy as well. For close to six years, Sethi served as General Manager – Security & Risk Management at IBM. In this role, he was responsible for maintaining the security posture and managing risk for a major Indian telco with a presence in 19 countries.
Sethi, during his stint at IBM, oversaw the deployment and maintenance of security technologies such as data loss prevention, vulnerability assessment tools, identity and access management, and SIEM operations.
Prior to joining IBM, at Ranbaxy, Sethi played a key role in establishing the global messaging set-up of the pharma giant – this included building redundancies, and setting up its business continuity plan (BCP). The deployments helped improve the uptime to over 99.8 per cent for all major services.
Sethi, over the years as a security leader, has acquired experience in building next-gen SOCs, vulnerability analyses and risk assessment, security architecture, and risk identification and mitigation.
Reflecting on his tenure at KPMG, Sethi says he’s grateful the company allowed him to develop a “deep understanding” of scaling cyber-security requirements for an organisation. This, he believes, is key in securing businesses for big enterprises in a “multifunctional environment and dynamic work culture.”
