26th September 2021 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

kaspersky-new-logoNew Delhi, 26th September, 2021: Cybersecurity and Digital Privacy bellwether Kaspersky has urged businesses to raise their bar of security intelligence to meet growing cyberthreat challenges in a rising digital economy. In a recent event hosted virtually on 24th September, the company urged them to strengthen their cybersecurity systems as the only way to protect their vital assets.

The Kaspersky event featured a virtual game night that allowed participants to become ‘cyber detective for a day’.

The game offered participants a chance to understand various risks facing businesses and the solutions available to mitigate them.
The push for better cyberthreat intelligence comes at a time when there is a wave of digital transformation going on across the country and a pandemic-triggered large-scale adoption of digital technology across sectors and institutions. All these have opened up the doors for more shophisticated and wide spread cyber attacks. Therefore, there’s a growing need for cyberthreat intelligence and protection, to proactively minimize risks and ward off cyberattacks.

While enterprises and institutions are waking up to the actual scale of dangers posed by weak cybersecurity systems targeting not only finances but also user data, Kaspersky has urged players to take speedy steps to strengthen their cybersecurity systems as the only way to protect not only their funds and data but also their reputation and the consumer’s trust in their ability to service them.

At its virtual event, the company featured a virtual game night that allowed participants to become ‘cyber detective for a day’. Through the game, they understood the various key risks facing businesses and the solutions available to mitigate them

The online gaming software simulated a number of cyberthreat incidents, for which were highlighted a range of solutions. As a result, participants were reminded of the various kinds of vulnerabilities that exist in the digital world and the counter-measures required for it.

While large businesses have woken up to cyberthreats, a lot more awareness is needed. But SMEs need to be clearly aware of these risks and take steps in the right direction. Large businesses too need to keep investing in latest cybersecurity solutions to ensure that their systems are constantly upgraded.

Thus, an organisation’s ability to manage and mitigate cyberthreats effectively is among key aspects of its survival in the digital world. For example, loss of data and other resources carry reputational risks. At the same time, robust protection could mean optimization of resources in terms of monitoring and compliance as well as increasing consumer confidence.

 

Kaspersky also underlined that given the unpredictable nature of cyberattacks, cybersecurity cells and teams within organisations need a truly reliable partner that provides them with the entire range of tools required to tackle a variety of threats. They also need a provider that is quick to respond to dynamic changes within the system, providing the latest in cyber defenses to protect their systems and their users, round the clock.

Kaspersky’s recent IT Security Economics Report found that threat intelligence is a recognized are of investment for 41% of enterprises and 39% of Small and Medium Businesses in response to a data breach.

The event also saw Kaspersky introducing its range of Threat Intelligence solutions — including its full suite of Threat Intelligence Services;
Kaspersky Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) Intelligence; Digital Footprint Intelligence; Kaspersky Threat Lookup; Kaspersky Cloud Sandbox; and Kaspersky Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Threat Intelligence Reporting Service.

Dipesh Kaura, GM – South Asia, Kaspersky, said, “In today’s world, where data is the new oil, cyberthreats can hurt businesses in more ways than one. Our digital world is a vulnerable one where only a specific few in an organization possess the skills or the ability to effectively monitor or respond to cybersecurity incidents. As a result, a comprehensive system based on intelligent infrastructure is your best bet against such attacks, which are growing more and more frequent. As a result, it is important to recognize that as an organization with digital presence, you are only as strong as your cybersecurity systems.”

” Kaspersky lends organisations the cybersecurity edge they need to provide services in a way that inspires confidence and protects them and their consumers,” added Kaura.
