Singapore. Digital transformation and development of advanced technologies is happening at full speed in India, but cyber experts have expressed concerns about the data security that the country needs from its neighboring adversaries and growing threats. Scams will have to be managed in view. Indian technologists and business executives should collaborate to create a comprehensive ecosystem to tackle technology-driven threats, experts said on the sidelines of Singapore Cyber ​​Week 2023. Singapore Cyber ​​Week – 2023 was held here from 17 to 19 October.

Experts said the three most affected sectors by such attacks in the last six months were healthcare, education/research and utilities. Retail, hospitality, manufacturing and transportation sectors should also take rapid steps towards cyber security. According to Check Point’s latest ‘Threat Intelligence Report’, each organization in India was attacked an average of 2,157 times per week in the last six months, compared to 1,139 attacks per organization globally. In August, the government passed the Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Act, 2023.
