- The financial service institutions have been identified to be more susceptible to cyber attacks, as compared to other industries.

Asia Pacific to Witness the Highest Growth

- India has been one of the most prominent victims of cyber attacks due to its relationship with the largest source of state-run actors, China. Although growing cyber attacks have propelled China to strengthen its defensive capabilities, the country has been recognized as a major source of origin for cyberattacks in other parts of the world. In India, Maharashtra’s cybersecurity cell noted increased activity from Chinese state-backed hackers targeting numerous sectors in India. According to the British Bankers’ Association (BBA) report, as of March 2021, 30% of global cyberattacks originated from China.

This ensures that institutions in the region share any data regarding breaches within their organizations and design and implement robust IR programs. Additionally, the companies in non-compliance are at risk of being levied fines of RMB 1 million or even criminal persecution.
