Due to rapid digitalization, enhanced regulatory attention on data and privacy, growing awareness on cyber threats, and many other factors, India’s cyber security market has nearly doubled in size during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the revenues from cyber security products and services have grown from $5.04 billion in 2019 to $9.85 billion in 2021, according to a report by the Data Security Council of India (DSCI). Right from consultation to implementation and management of cyber security controls, frameworks, policies and much more, various companies in the cyber security realm understood and imbibed the best of cybersecurity to ensure that their clients enjoy a threat-free business. Besides, these companies have also established a stream of security operations centres, cyber defence centres, and R&D centres across the globe to provide nothing less than the best to their clients.

Yet, there is an urgent need for organizations to be fully prepared for the challenges in the cybersecurity domain. Some of these challenges include mobile banking malware, cryptocurrencies, deepfake technology, cyber insurance, social engineering threat, 5G network, IoT devices, phishing attacks, cloud, automation, and many more.

Cyber Espionage on the Rise for India!

India stands among the top 5 targets for cyberattacks in the APAC region, especially security breaches that include cyber espionage. Further adding to this fact, the cybersecurity and digital privacy company Kaspersky’s latest ‘Cyberthreats to Financial Organizations in 2022’ report states that the reasons behind these breaches encompass rapidly increasing usage of digital technologies matched by a proportional lack of awareness regarding cybersecurity, and limited resources deployed towards mitigation. Especially after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, cyberattacks have been on a constant rise as the new distributed workforce provides more opportunities for criminals to exploit.

Hence, it has become extremely imperative for all private and government-oriented organizations to enforce and adhere to stringent cyber security measures. An active firewall, frequent updates and backup, advanced endpoint defence mechanism, zero trust security, attack surface management, enhanced email security and many others might be abundantly helpful for these organizations to stay abreast of any type of cyberattack or threat. Moreover, the future seems quite bright for the cyber security market in India! It is expected to grow to USD 3.05 billion by 2022 driven by investments by organizations to safeguard against cyber threats.

Devising a cyber risk insurance plan along with a comprehensive cyber security roadmap is highly essential for every organization in the current times. In fact, multiple companies have been at the forefront of providing these kinds of advanced cyber security services and solutions directly to businesses so that the latter can focus on their core works.
