Security slows down digital strategies in Asia

Despite an acceleration of digital transformation across Asia Pacific (APAC), 65 per cent of organisations remain held back by an inability to prioritise cyber security.

That’s according to findings from Frost & Sullivan – in a report commissioned by Forcepoint which found that the majority of businesses do not take cyber security seriously while embarking on digital projects.

However, the report also found that the majority of customers (72 per cent) do conduct regular breach assessments to protect themselves against cyber attacks, but 55 per cent still remain at risk.

Delving deeper, cloud was cited as a key component of digital transformation – 69 per cent of respondents have adopted cloud – but most businesses think cyber security is the responsibility of their cloud service provider.

“It is clear from this study that many APAC organisations are on the back foot when it comes to enterprise cyber security in the borderless organisation,” said Kenny Yeo, industry principal of APAC at Frost & Sullivan.
