Barely a day goes past that the international press does not carry a story of a massive data breach—whether it is about a billion records taken from a tech company, a health insurer’s 80 million records, or a bank’s small but significant 9,000. And yet, rarely do we hear of breaches from Asian organizations.
Could it be that the information technology (IT) security of Asian organizations is ahead of those of our Western counterparts, or, as many in the region think, that Asian organizations are either below or do not figure on the radar of the cybercriminals who steal this information?
