Profiles in Leadership: CIO Davanathan 'Devan' NaidooNew Dimension CIO Details Strategies for Migrating From Legacy to Cloud Systems
One of the most challenging and essential jobs for any IT or cybersecurity leader at an organization that runs legacy systems is effectively managing the transition to cloud or hybrid environments, says Davanathan "Devan" Naidoo, CIO of New Dimension Corp.
Organizations have clear drivers for moving to cloud, including saving money and facilitating mobile employees, but careful risk assessments are required to manage the increased risk that using such environments can pose, he says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profiles in Leadership series, Naidoo discusses:
- The importance of taking a phased approach when migrating from legacy system to the cloud;
- His essential dashboard view, comprising legacy and hybrid systems, awareness and training, and self-development;
- The importance of developing your team and yourself.
Naidoo has 22 years of experience across IT strategy, management, governance, audit and risk and cybersecurity domains. His previous experience includes planning and implementing turnaround and growth strategies in highly complex business portfolios for the South African government across the gambling, liquor, tourism, diamond, and precious metals sectors, as well as for academic institutions.
