Information Security @ Target

Information Security is an exciting field to work in, where challenges are always changing and the pace of change is really fast. Working on cutting-edge Information Security solutions for Target in Bangalore gives me good insight into how the field is evolving across geographies. For instance, India is now seeing a surge in demand for Information Security experience and talent. One of the major projects undertaken by the Government of India – the Unique Identification for citizens – draws focus to this area of expertise. Closer to home, hearing my pre-teen daughter discuss what she is learning at school about the importance of strong passwords, knowing whom to trust (or not) on social media and combating cyber bullying makes me more hopeful for the field.

At Target in India, we are rapidly expanding our Information Security capabilities and building a great team. Our team has deep engineering capabilities, using analytics for risk management and leveraging solutions to improve our prevention, detection & response capabilities so we can continue to offer a secure shopping experience for our guests.

The Information Security team plays a critical role in supporting our business by managing risks across domains, enabling key initiatives and strengthening the key retail foundations of data reliability, supply chain and stability of technology platforms. While doing this, we are also evolving our operating processes to be LEAN and adopting DevOps’ practices such as Agile to drive accountability.
For the last two years, I have been part of that work. Today, not only are we meeting the expectations of our business partners, but also setting an industry benchmark for mature Information Security practices.

Target’s global security team is location agnostic —from our information security team in India, to our colleagues around the world. Each team’s location has specific core competencies. For example in India, our priorities are to evolve our identity management practices, access governance, enforcement and intelligence. We are very excited about our new facility, the Cyber Fusion Center, which will further enhance our cyber security capabilities and team engagement. As a team we are able to learn, unlearn and have lots of fun along the way.

The team in India is growing at a fast pace. Our team members can benefit from different learning and coaching programs, which help them succeed in the long term. We also engage with external industry forums to facilitate knowledge sharing. We recently hosted the first Information Security Meetup in India to exchange ideas with the wider Information Security community. The theme of this flagship event was Identity Management and Product Security, and it was well-attended by over 100 practitioners in Bangalore.

Personally, my role on the team has helped me work with great talent and continually build new capabilities, while ensuring that our strategic vision and principles remain unchanged during periods of change. There has not been a dull moment so far and I’m sure the road ahead will be equally exciting!
