Cybersecurity awareness among smartphone users is still low
“Everybody is seen with a smartphone or a mobility device nowadays. But the question which arises is that out of these 600 million users, how many of them are aware about cyber security. If we are not secured on the cyber front, then how will we understand the disadvantages and losses that need to be borne. It is not only the loss of data but the prestige of the organization comes at stake during an event of cyber incident. When we target something big, what kind of a vision should we have. In my opinion, the eagle has the vision and target that extends even beyond 5 kms. The CIO and the CISO community has that similar kind of vision. They can sense threats even six months prior. The development team at Sophos also has this vision as they continue to study the market, take insights of how frequently the attacks happen and accordingly keep on enhancing our products. There were surveys conducted by us in the beginning of this financial year in the APAC region, with over more than 15,000 CIOs. The survey reveals that 93% of the surveyed have experienced a cyber-attack of some form, while 63% of the IT professionals always say that they don't want to spend time on such ongoing issues. The average time taken to identify an issue is 9 hours. For an organization between 3000 and 10,000 users is even higher - the average time to identify that incident is 15 hours.”
