Wipro offers lower salary package to new recruits
Leading IT services company Wipro is now offering a lower salary package to the fresher candidates from the earlier Rs 6.5 lakh per annum (LPA) to Rs 3.5 LPA. This development comes amid the environment of an economic recession in developed economies which has an impact on Indian IT companies.
According to a report by Moneycontrol, Wipro has written to candidates who are fresh graduates asking them if they are willing to take up the revised salary package offer. The company offers two hiring programmes called Elite and Turbo to fresh graduates. Under Elite, candidates are offered Rs 3.5 LPA while Turbo individuals get Rs 6.5 LPA.
The onboarding has deferred since August last year and the candidates received an email from Wipro on February 16 giving them the option to choose the lower paying role and to do so by February 20, according to the report.

Miscommunication leading to cybersecurity breaches: Report
More than half of top-tier managers in India (80%) admit that a miscommunication with the IT department or IT security team has resulted in at least one cybersecurity incident in their organisations, the recent Forrester analytics survey revealed. In terms of personal attitudes, the majority of non-IT executives cited a diminished sense of cooperation between different teams (48%) and said this situation makes them question their colleagues’ skills and abilities when communication with their IT-security employees was unclear (43%).
The companies spend an average of 37 days and $2.4 million to detect and recover from a cybersecurity breach. To determine how much mutual understanding between executives and information security teams affects a company's cyber resilience, Kaspersky conducted a global survey of more than 1,300 business leaders.
According to the results of the study, 100% of non-IT respondents experienced miscommunications regarding IT security. With regards to consequences, most often a breakdown in communications leads to serious project delays (81%) and cybersecurity incidents (80%). Almost one-third of respondents (46% and 45% respectively) even said that they had even encountered these issues more than once. Among other negative effects are a wasted budget, the loss of a valued employee and deteriorating relationships between teams—situations that occurred to 74% of respondents.
