Sixty-six per cent of business decision makers in India
believe lack of security expertise is a challenge for their organisations,
while 63 per cent of Indian businesses are concerned about being exposed to
cyber threats due to employee errors, according to a new report
The success of an organisation's cyber security investment lies
not just in buying technology, but corporate culture, employee education and
path-to-purchase also play critical roles, according to the Future of
Cybersecurity in Asia Pacific and Japan-Culture, Efficiency, Awareness report.
"Cyber security is a shared responsibility. While IT teams must
be proactive in their response to cyber threats, knowledgeable employees and
leadership teams pave the way for organisations to better detect, protect and
respond," Sharma said.
In line with this approach, 79 per cent of Indian business
decision makers would want to adopt deeply-integrated or synchronised security
solutions that could detect, investigate and respond to cyber threats, it added.
According to global cyber security major Sophos, main triggers
for security updates -- beyond changes to overall security posture -- are
technology and product developments, compliance and regulation requirements, and
growing awareness of new attacks.
