Repeated Data Breach- A Matter of Worry
Data Breach has become a serious issue nowadays. India has fallen prey to data breaches several times. At a frequent speed, the cases of data breaches are happening. Most of the time, these data breaches are not reported. In the recent past, there have been several data breach incidents involving Indian firms which include Bigbasket, BuyUcoin, JusPay, Upstox, and others. The way data breaches are increasing has become a matter of worry.
TPT Policy Advocacy & Recommendations
- It is high time that the Indian Government must impose the Data Protection Bill. Protection of the users is much important at every step. The Govt needs to bring effective policies to stop these malicious acts. If the data breaches continue one after another, then the organizations will suffer to a great extent.
- The employees of the organizations must be educated on best security practices and also to avoid cyber attacks. The Government needs to focus more on incentivizing security improvements at points in the cyber ecosystem that will produce a large-scale effect and protect the users and the companies.
