Half a billion lost to fraud in September 2022

Cybercrime, which includes theft or embezzlement to data hacking and destruction, spiked up 600% during Covid-19 pandemic.

The 5th OFFSITE ANNUAL CYBER SECURITY SUMMIT themed “New Normal calls for New Cyber Defence Strategies” saw CTOS participating in the forum whereby ransomware is the biggest discussed concern today.

CTOS General Manager of Cyber Security & Resilience, Sivanathan Subramaniam said back-up strategy to protect against ransomware attacks needs new way of thinking and deliberation.

“The back-up strategy needs to be aligned with your business, which means it has to be risk-based and with the current typical business expectations you will probably need to recover almost immediately. And with ransomware attack so pervasive the need for robust and reliable recovery strategy is something that businesses can no longer ignore” he said at the forum recently.

It was reported that half a billion ringgit has been lost to fraud in Malaysia just in September alone and 79% of local companies have been hit with ransomware.

It is vital for every industry to embrace new solutions and companies have to adopt good cyber security practices as soon as possible.

The top four cyber incidents in Malaysia (CYBER999) includes fraud, malicious code, intrusion and content related.

CTOS, Malaysia’s leading Credit Reporting Agency, offers CTOS SecureID fraud protection and credit monitoring service for individual.
