THE STATE OF CYBERSECURITY IN ASIA-PACIFIC

June 29, 2017

The world is in the midst of massive technological change. Unprecedented breakthroughs are bringing the physical and digital worlds closer than ever before, pushing businesses and governments to rethink production, management and governance systems. Yet even as newer, more complex technologies, such as big data, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and the internet of things, promise to open up a world of unparalleled growth opportunities, the risk of confidential data being maliciously collected, stored and disseminated is on the rise. Indeed, it is not so much a matter of if private information is secure, but how it is likely to be stolen or misused. In the Asia-Pacific region, this risk is further compounded by the fact that cybersecurity is still a relatively nascent sector.
