EXECUTIVE SUMMARYand strategic scan of the landscape

Executive's Message

Cybercrime is predicted to cost businesses $2.1 trillion in 2019 and $6 Trillion by 2022 globally. To further deepen the situation Forbes has cited a severe shortfall of the right kind of cybersecurity skills in the market. At present, there are over 2 million unfilled cybersecurity positions in the industry and which is going to go over 3 million by 2022.

More and more organisations are heavily leveraging the speed and agility of the internet for the success of their business unaware of the need for cybersecurity to support their sustainability. It is the prime reason for the rise of borderless crimes, predominantly of the nature of cybercrime, thereby, bringing the industry amidst an adverse crossfire targeting its vulnerabilities for exploiting its data, information and intellectual property. Thereon, adding a new dimension of risk to the business called the ‘Cyber Risk’.

Gartner states only 20% of small and medium segment organisations have some or minimal access to cybersecurity where 95% doesn’t even have a firewall, and it is 65% and 75% respectively in the case of large organisations. Governments have started enforcing laws regulation and standards (GDPR, GDPA, NDB, PDPA, NESA, etc.) and associated penalties as a deterrence for the industry for not adopting cybersecurity.

Due to the disruptive developments in the business landscapes from the perspective of cyber risks, regulations and nation-state actors joining in, it has become an ever-present boardroom conversation with focus and attention to address the issues of cyber risk to their business.
