Successful businesses throughout Asia use technology to increase sales, maximise efficiency and reduce expenses. Evolving technologies such as cloud computing, mobile devices, social media and “big data” analytics have helped them become more competitive in the global economy. Meanwhile, the array of threats to cyber security continues to grow and evolve, and Asian companies are considered by many to be the most likely targets in the world. Cyber theft, fraud, sabotage, espionage, internal attacks from rogue employees, and hacking (including from governments) are more frequent in the social media age and the associated costs with information security breaches are increasing for entities in every industry sector – from retail, financial institutions, healthcare, hospitality, media, communications, technology, consulting and professional services to manufacturing, government/public sector, energy/utilities, critical infrastructure and transportation. The legal exposure, reputational harm and business interruptions that may result can wreak havoc on an organisation’s bottom line.
