26/7 and learning
This is with reference to the December 2005 issue of Network Magazine which
discussed the topics of DR and BC. In this, it was quite interesting to see
the collection of experiences titled Tales from 26/7 which detailed
the viewpoints of prominent CIOs on the Mumbai floods.
While disasters can never be completely avoided, it is always necessary to learn
from them. It was really great of these CIOs to share the knowledge gained with
the rest of the community. I really appreciate this gesture and hope that Network
Magazine will continue to cover such events where such learning is shared.
Dear Mr Tiwari,
Thank you very much for the feedback and encouraging words.
We will be covering the lessons imparted by such knowledge sharing sessions
in the future too.
It will also be great if readers can keep us informed about
any such events happening that we may not be aware of. We will find such inputs
In the meanwhile, do keep in touch and the feedback coming

The VSNL story
Network Magazines case study on VSNLs BS 7799 certification endeavour
was quite an interesting read. It is indeed a remarkable achievement and my
congratulations to R Jayaraman and his team
Such stories are very relevant in the current scenario where certifications
and compliance are a necessary criterion due to the competition created by globalisation.
It will be great if you can do more in-depth stories on the certification and

and regulatory compliance. You can expect to read more such unique case studies
