Some research reports shine a spotlight on the need of cyber security awareness. Let’s take a look at some recent stats:
The research carried out by Axelos, a UK government/Capita joint venture, found that 75 percent of large organizations suffered staff-related security breaches in 2015, with 50 percent of the worst breaches caused by human error.
Last year Assocham and Mahindra Special Service group(SSG) released the report of a joint study “Cyber and Network Security Framework”, findings of this study are alarming…according to this report Cyber Crimes in India are increasing at 107% of Common Annual Growth Rate. Let’s take a look at some highlights of this report that are published at assocham.org:
–India ranks third after Japan and US in the tally of countries most affected by online banking malware during the year of 2014.
–As per the findings, every month nearly 12,456 cases of cyber crimes registered in India.
–The number of cyber crime victims in India (2012) was 46 million people against the global average of 560 million.
–During the years 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 (till May), a total number of 21,699, 27,605, 28,481, 48,174 Indian websites were hacked by various hacker group spread across worldwide.
–Phishing attacks of online banking accounts or cloning of ATM/Debit cards are common occurrences. The increasing use of mobile/smartphones/tablets for online banking/financial transactions has also increased the vulnerabilities to a great extent. The maximum offenders came from the 18-30 age group.

–According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), in 2013, 681 cyber crime related cases have been registered in Maharashtra, which has seen a 44.6 percent rise in cyber crimes when compared to 2012. Andhra Pradesh with 635 cases registered in 2013 has also seen a 48 percent rise when compared to 2012. Karnataka with 513 cases registered in 2013 has seen a 24.5 percent rise when compared to 2012.

We believe that the approach to address cyber security needs some improvements because the attackers are becoming more and more sophisticated and advanced too.
At DappsTech, Cyber Security Awareness is one of our prime areas. At this stage, we are developing Cyber Security Awareness Training Modules according to the specific needs.
