Indian firms confident to deal with external cyber threats

New Delhi: A majority of Indian companies are confident of dealing with the cyber security threats, says a survey released by financial advisory firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India Pvt Ltd.

Unlike last year when many companies had done less investments on security due to economic downturn, organisations have gradually started to focus on employees and other internal security challenges, along with external threats.

Out of the 62 organisations surveyed, 66 percent said they are confident in their ability to thwart external attacks. Thirty two percent of the respondents, however, believed that their information security professionals lack competencies to handle existing and foreseeable security requirements.

Last year's edition of security survey had found that companies spent less on security. The damages done by last year's budget cuts are reflected this year's responses.

Although 48 percent believe they are on plan in dealing with security threats, 44 percent still believe that they are falling behind or catching up in dealing with security threats.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
