It's All About Security

As the pandemic forced organisations globally to adopt and shift to remote work, cyber attackers have embarked on a non-discriminate campaign to attack the infrastructure of organisations across the world, leveraging a continually changing set of tools and targets.

96% of the Singaporean businesses reported suffering a data breach between September 2018 and September 2019. The need to prevent and plan against such breaches, adhere to regulations from Governments for handling of public data, and mitigating cyber-risk is paramount. Global Market Insights forecasts that the global cybersecurity market is set to exceed $400 Bn by 2026 with APAC cybersecurity market accounting for 20%.

Around 2 Mn IT security professionals were still needed in 2020 for APAC at a time when organizations were scurrying to adopt new technologies in order to facilitate remote work. Businesses in Asia Pacific often come up short on cloud expertise and endpoint controls – leaving companies vulnerable to cyberattacks.
