IT security still a big challenge for Indian SMBs

India’s small and midsize businesses (SMBs) lack complete understanding of the IT security landscape and tend to be reactive, rather than proactive, which can turn out more costly to manage.
According to Kishan Bhatt, engagement manager at Zinnov, some common assaults faced by SMBs in India are virus attacks, trojans, phishing, pharming, and man-in-the-middle and man-in-the-browser attacks. He noted that while larger organizations take robust measures to safeguard themselves against such attacks, in the case of smaller organizations, these processes are not well defined.
A recent Zinnov report revealed India is home to around 50 million SMBs, of which 10 million are technology-ready.
Most SMBs would have some form of security application installed in their systems. However, Bhatt said over half would be running pirated copies of these software, bought at a fraction of the cost from the grey market.
