Detecting security incidents

Books 2 Byte
From Strength to Strength

Role of security awareness

Statistically, India seems to have fared better than the global average in preventing security-related incidents, finds a recent survey of information security. In the last one year, only 17 per cent of the respondents were unaware of any security incidents and breaches as against a global benchmark of 40 per cent; also, 46 per cent of the Indian organisations reported that there have not been any security incidents in the last one year against the global 22 per cent. Thus notes From Strength to Strength, even while hastening to add that these numbers should not be a reason for complacency, “as organisations reporting no negative security incidents may not have adequate processes or awareness for detecting or reporting incidents.”
