Organizations in India take 222 hours on an average to detect, triage and investigate a cyberattack, making them much slower than the global average of 162 hours, says a new survey by US-based cyber-security firm CrowdStrike.

Almost all respondents from India (97 percent) said cyberattacks sponsored by malicious and unfriendly countries pose a clear and present danger to the organization.

Over 40 percent of Indians surveyed said China was the country that most worries respondents when thinking about the potential origin of a nation-state-sponsored cyberattack.

Surprisingly, 30 percent of Indians also said they thought India and or Pakistan could be the potential origin of a nation-state-sponsored cyberattack, said the study titled “2019 Global Security Attitude Survey”.
