Is India the safest place in terms of cyber security? Difficult question to answer as there are many factors at play here. However, the stats certainly seem to show India has the lowest number of cyber attacks per PC.
Atlanta based security vendor, SecureWorks recently conducted a study showing India being the safest digital country with only 52 cyber attacks per 1000 PCs compared with 1600 cyber attacks per 1000 PCs in USA.
This is great news for India, however there has to be an ongoing improvement process for India and also for the rest of the world but certainly a good start. We certainly can’t be using these statistics to become complacent in our efforts.
There are many factors that could cause the differences between countries such as the ratio of windows, Mac and Linux PCs, each with varying levels of security. Other factors can be the level of antivirus/firewall usage and the level of protection which ISPs can offer too.
Ultimately security is paramount and every organisation has to take it seriously. At Virtual IT Studio, we take security very seriously using the latest firewalls, antivirus, anti-spyware and a range of backup options to ensure our clients’ data is safe and secure if anything unfortunate were to occur.
