Lack of APAC Businesses Collaboration Compromising Regional Security
Microsoft CSO Michael Montoya recently remarked that the lack of information exchange and breach disclosure between legitimate APAC businesses is affecting the security posture in the region which remains the least mature and most frequently attacked globally.
Montoya added that threat actors are actually collaborating more and out-evolving the industry.
It was also noted in Microsoft’s latest Security Intelligence Report that Asia, particularly the fast-growing economies of Southeast Asia, is a popular target for threat groups because of its accelerated digital transformation. According to Montoya, the region maintains an archaic defence posture despite its widening the attack surface, which makes it an attractive target.
