Tirthankar Dutta

Tirthankar Dutta, previously serving as the Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for Star & Disney India, has been elevated to a pivotal role as the Head of Enterprise IT, a position parallel to that of a Chief Information Officer. Additionally, he will spearhead the company’s cybersecurity division. This promotion reflects Disney Star’s confidence in Dutta’s expertise and leadership capabilities within the information technology and security domains.

On April 14, 2022, a significant rebranding occurred when Star India was renamed Disney Star, underlining its affiliation with Disney India. Disney India, a subsidiary of the global entertainment giant The Walt Disney Company, oversees Disney Star. This Indian media powerhouse commands an impressive portfolio, operating over 70 television channels across eight different languages, thus marking a significant footprint in the Indian media landscape.

Before his tenure at Star & Disney India in 2021, Dutta contributed his skills and leadership to InfoEdge as the Head of Information Security and Senior Vice President. His extensive career includes positions with notable organisations such as Forbes, Expedia, Religare, HCL Technologies, and IBM, where he honed his information security and technology management expertise.

In his role preceding the promotion, Dutta played a strategic advisory role to the Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and other essential figures within the company’s leadership. He was instrumental in establishing robust relationships with the upper echelons of management, business leaders, and the developer community by articulating clear and strategic information security goals.

In his new capacity, Dutta is set to continue overseeing the strategic planning processes for information security, aiming to devise a comprehensive security and compliance framework. This framework is expected to significantly enhance the security posture of Disney Star’s development, research, and administrative information systems and technologies.

Holding an engineering degree and boasting an array of certifications, Tirthankar Dutta brings over 17 years of experience in Information Technology. His specialisation includes IT management, IT security management, and IT enterprise architecture, making him a valuable asset in Disney Star’s ongoing pursuit of excellence in information technology and cybersecurity.
