Companies Need More Strength in Cyber Security

COVID has changed the working of many companies

As the Covid pandemic has brought about a sea change in the operations of most companies with work from home becoming the trend over the past 8-10 months, cybersecurity experts are of the view that several companies still need to be more proactive in terms of strengthening their systems against cyber attacks.

Arpinder Singh, India & Emerging Markets Leader, EY Forensic & Integrity Services noted that a large number of companies have been largely reactive, rather than proactive regarding cybersecurity during the pandemic.

“I think some organizations have been proactive and some organizations have been reactive. Reactive means they have actually had an incident and then they have run around trying to fix it, I think some companies have been smart, when someone has been hit, they have analyzed that loss and then thought of protecting themselves. But that’s a slow process in the pandemic… everyone has a tight budget,” he said.

“I am seeing the proactive side, but not as much as I should be,” Singh added.

He also said that with the data privacy bill coming in, companies will be directly or indirectly forced quickly adopt the best practices in terms of cybersecurity.

“Acts like the data privacy bill, if they come faster, I think that will help the whole air, environment, and infrastructure as it leads to cyber.”

He added that with the amount of feedback coming in and the magnitude of e-commerce happening, the government should be considering some more policy measures to curb cyber threats.
