Indian organizations are readily accepting blockchain technology in their respective domains. There is a huge acceleration in the adoption of the encryption based technology as it provides a variety of features with advanced security. This technology addresses security concerns for the system in a systematic way and there is almost zero possibility of security and data breach from its network.
As per the figures unveiled by India Data Threat Report 2018, it is clear that the security and data breach incidents are pretty high in India in terms of the global average. In addition, there is a further emphasis on the need of the hour to change. This is the time to make significant upgrades in the Indian security systems. The reports were published by defense grade technology firm Thales eSecurity.
Thales eSecurity Sales Director of South Asia, James Cook stated that this survey was conducted on senior IT security managers. There were around 1200 participants in which 100 were Indians during October and November last year. The figures revealed that approximately 52 percent of reports were filed for the data breach in India; however, the global average was around only 3 percent. (Via INC 42)
