2015 was a definitely a challenging year given the rise of insider threats, spike in malware, sophisticated stealth tools, and morphing attacks, writes Nigel Tan of IBM Asean.
Organisations are more aware and spending more on IT security, but that is not necessarily translating to a lower exposure to ‘cyber risk’ – or the risk of financial loss, disruption or damage to an organisation’s reputation from cyber-attacks and cybercrime.
