Organizations these days have to deal with viruses on two fronts – the virtual space, rife with cyber-attacks, and the real world, where COVID-19 is running loose. With the pandemic acting as a trigger, organizations implementing remote work are rushing to shift their on-premises systems to the cloud in mostly unplanned migrations. As a result, system vulnerability issues are cropping up, leaving valuable data exposed to cybercriminals.
Securing data and systems has practically never been an easy task. Security threats like system breaches, data theft, virus and malware attacks, and so on in cyberspace are ever-present challenges. Along with the threats from cybercriminals, organizations also cannot afford to discount insider threats, signaling a need to be vigilant of both external and internal security threats. On top of that, challenges like ransomware and COVID-19 phishing schemes are also taking over cyberspace, stealing sensitive data from organizations, and using them for cyber-crimes like online extortion and identity theft.
With such looming threats populating cyberspace, organizations obviously need to ramp up their cybersecurity measures. With a mind to assist organizations in choosing the appropriate cybersecurity mechanisms and solutions suited to their specific needs, a distinguished panel of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and other thought leaders from the industry, along with the editorial board of APAC CIO Outlook, has selected the leading companies in the cybersecurity segment looking to offer their expertise to the widest market possible.
