A hotbed for cyber attacks, India emerged as the third most vulnerable country in terms of risk of cyber threats in 2017, moving up one place over 2016, according to a report by security solutions provider Symantec. Stimulated by expanding smartphone production market, increased wireless data consumption has also brought a cost to country's cybersecurity. With spurring thrust on the digitization of every element of the Indian business landscape like financial, manufacturing, business or Government, many Indian organizations have been victims of security breaches over the last two years. The advent of new technology like the Internet of Things (IoT), Robotics & automation, Mobile telephony and virtualization fully operational in all spheres, cybercrime has grown multiple folds. Soaring threats of cyber breaches, DDOS and onslaught of Ransomware have become the two largest vectors of attacks against governments, corporations, and consumers worldwide, thus crippling secure critical information infrastructure. To counter this, companies across sectors like manufacturing, auto, IT, BFSI and other government bodies are now pouring millions into having a robust cybersecurity cover for their operations. As it seems, Cybersecurity will soon become a priority of focus placed on the shelf of a business' assets rather than just being an add-on feature. With the rise in cybersecurity threats, companies from across sectors like manufacturing, IT, BFSI and other government bodies are now pouring millions into buying cyber insurances.
