Enterprises of all sizes including MSME are at equal risks from Cyber Criminals. The Cyber Criminals are getting more innovative and are using cutting edge tools to target enterprises and Organizations. As the threats become more sophisticated, Organizations /Corporates will need to invest in solutions that have the capabilities to deter the threats coming.
In recent times, India has launched a series initiatives to digitally empower its citizens As the Digital India initiative progresses, cyberattacks have also doubled year over year, and Indian businesses and government sites have become more vulnerable to attacks. In the wake of increasing cyber threats, India appointed its first chief information security officer (CISO). The appointment underlines India’s commitment to combating cyber attacks.
It is reported that global annual losses due to cybercrime ranges from billions to trillions of dollars. The annual costs of cyber-attacks may be higher because some companies may not want to reveal the details of their losses due to market reasons and in many cases, the companies may be unaware of the exact value or nature of the information that has been stolen from them.
According to recent report by Symantec, cyber criminals are increasingly adopting corporate best practices and establishing professional businesses in order to increase the efficiency of their attacks. Symantec said that there is a dangerous possibility that rogue nation states could align with organised crime for their personal gain. This could result in down time for our country political, military or financial systems.
The increase in the cyber crime in our country is increasing. The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) said in its 2016 report, that 11,592 cases of cybercrime were registered in India in 2015. There is need for all stake holders involved to improve on
Another report by consulting firm E&Y, it is said that Over 90% of Indian businesses have identified social media as a precarious platform spurring new-age cyber threats. As per this report, employees are the second-largest source of risk after unknown hackers as they post extensive details regarding their work profile on social networking websites. These social media platforms act as a gold mine for cyber criminals to identify and target key individuals for a successful breach. This report identifies five key sectors affected by cyber crime: Technology, Media and Telecommunication Financial services, Automotive and Transportation, Government and public sector units and real estate, construction and hospitality as most vulnerable.
