Managed Security Services Enabling Digital Transformation
The cyber threat environment now dominates as a key theme in the corporate boardroom. In a survey of over 1,300 enterprises across the Asia/Pacific excluding Japan (APeJ) region, security enhancement was cited as the top driver for spending on external services providers. This is not surprising as gaining access to personal, sensitive and classified data is at the heart of cyber espionage. The publicised data breaches in 2015, which affected millions of customer accounts of companies such as Hong Kong toymaker VTech and Ashley Madison, are just the tip of the iceberg, with many security incidences gone unreported due to weak regulatory enforcement. A bigger concern is that these data breaches threaten the safety of the public at large as no one organisation, including healthcare providers, government and commercial businesses, is immune to cyber security threats.
