70% companies are subjected to cyber threat

Latest news revealed that About 70 percent of the companies are vulnerable and facing cyber attacks, partly because they are either not aware-hence haven’t got their systems assessed, or are not adequately protected.

News shows that companies globally are subjected to increasing threats of data breach, and Indian companies are equally vulnerable.

In 2019, many well known companies are facing cyber attacks like more than 1.3 million credit and debit card details from Indian banks were breached, Facebook users’ passwords were found exposed and Twitter too had its trouble facing data leak.

Maintaining user's trust is the important factor for any organisation. Company's must ensure that their application and their user's data are secure.

To successfully fight against malicious intent, it’s imperative that companies make cybersecurity awareness, prevention and security best practices a part of their culture.
