More than 3,700 companies, including IT trendsetters, regarding cybersecurity-related jobs within 14 markets of the APAC region were analysed in the recent Cisco study.

74% of Indian SMEs had to deal with cybersecurity incidents. 85% of the affected companies lost client details. Among the compromised data there were emails (73%), employee data (71%), intellectual property (74%), financial details (75%). Nearly all those affected said that the breach cost them client trust.

There are several ways of invasion by malicious actors found during the study – the workflow of 92% of small and medium enterprises were influenced by malware attacks, whereas 76% of companies were affected by phishing. 38% of hacked businesses blamed having no proper information security solutions installed in the system. Nearly the same percentage claimed that solutions wouldn’t be any help for tackling an attack.

One of the most popular problem concerning cybersecurity solutions appeared to be the difficulty of having all the technologies integrated for smart use.
