Rapid digitization is leading to faster development and release of products, enabling an increase in customer engagement for business growth and innovation to drive business process transformation.
The trend is bringing with it a host of data privacy risks and opened opportunities for cybercriminals to strike as organisations rush to meet customer demands. Companies of all sizes have been impacted by these trends yet not all have the resource and scale to protect themselves.
At the same time, the global pandemic has led to a dramatic rise in cybercrime. According to a study from Deloitte, more than half a million people globally were affected by breaches in which the personal data of video conferencing users was stolen and sold on the dark web.
Miro Pihkanen, partner, cyber risk services, Deloitte China said, "The cyber threat has become a board-level risk in today’s business world. If you’re operating online, you’re at risk. An attack can lead to financial and reputational damage, both of which can be irreparable. A reactive response is no longer good enough, prevention measures must be put in place well in advance and proactive detection of threats is a must."
Deloitte Cyber has joined forces with HGC Group to help companies in combating the cyberattacks, with the support of HGC group’s full-fledged telecom, data centre services, ICT solutions and broadband services for local, overseas, corporate and mass.
According to HGC CEO, Andrew Kwok, HGC Group is continuously expanding the digital transformation to local and international markets, cybersecurity is one of the most prominent considerations during this digital journey.
“The partnership between HGC Group’s Macroview and Deloitte can offer a 360-degree view of cybersecurity services across all industry segments to protect our customers’ digital assets and support them in operating an anti-risk environment while developing their business,” he added.
