Two-thirds of Asia Pacific organizations say failure to prioritize cybersecurity hampering digital transformation journey

Forcepoint has unveiled the findings of an Asia Pacific study conducted by leading IT analyst firm Frost & Sullivan, revealing that Asia Pacific (APAC) organizations’ failure to prioritize cybersecurity is hindering their digital transformation journey.

The study finds that most APAC organizations (83%) don’t think about cybersecurity while embarking on digital transformation projects. Although majority of the organizations (72%) conduct regular breach assessment to protect themselves against cyberattacks, still 55% of them were at risk. The study reveals that Cloud is a key component of digital transformation (69% of respondents have adopted cloud) but most organizations think cybersecurity is the responsibility of their cloud service provider.

The study reveals a big push among APAC organizations, with 95% of respondents having embarked on a digital transformation journey, adopting emerging technologies including cloud computing, mobility, internet of things, and artificial intelligence/ machine learning. However, most organizations, 65% of respondents, acknowledged that they are seriously hampered in execution of digital transformation projects due to rising cyberattacks.
