Data Privacy Day – Quotes by Ishan Technologies and Ring

As India asserts its position as a global technological hub, the cyber threat landscape looms large, with the country ranking among the top five globally for malware detections. This revelation, underscored in Trend Micro’s cybersecurity report, serves as an alarm for all businesses to take proactive measures to ensure a safe digital environment. One key area of concern is the escalating impact of cybersecurity on small businesses. Recent data from IBM Security’s report reveals that the cost of a data breach in India stood at ₹17.9 crore in 2023. This marks a significant 28% increase since 2020, sending shockwaves throughout the IT sector and the broader business landscape, particularly affecting small enterprises that may struggle to absorb such high costs.

Hence, Investing in robust cybersecurity measures is a strategic imperative for businesses to thrive in this data-driven world. It’s time for organizations to prioritize cybersecurity and protect what matters most—their data, their reputation, and their future. Ishan Technologies stands ready to lead in this cybersecurity evolution, safeguarding not just data but the very fabric of organizational resilience and future growth. The company’s tailored services advocate for an integrated approach, coupled with upskilling initiatives. At Ishan, we are steadfast in our commitment to shaping a secure digital future for India, where the ethos of security is deeply ingrained.”
