Indian startups show poor cyber security preparedness - CIO&Leader

Indian organisations rank quite low in cyber-security preparedness, with startups being the worst performer among them, according to a report by FireCompass.

As per the report, the startups scored eight out of 100 as per security benchmark.

The report said that Indian organisations across different sectors on an average scored around 50 out of 100 in the survey, in which large banks emerged as the best performer with a compliance percentage of 61.

"Organisations traditionally have been using informal approaches to communicate security posture to the management/board, making it difficult to benchmark security across industry," Bikash Barai, co-founder, FireCompass, said in a statement.

Most industries performed moderate, like telecom (61%), IT (52%), manufacturing (51%), insurance (45%) and small banks (43%), as seen in the following figure:

The report underlined that the majority of security investments have been done around prevention technologies like Firewalls, whereas investments in detection and response capabilities were largely neglected.

The score in terms of prevention techniques was 63%, for detection and response they were 51% and 31% respectively.
