No matter what the size of an organization, one needs to ensure that the confidential information is protected properly, as any breach in the security can cost companies. A properly executed security program extends the safety boundary by noting down all potential threats and by designing a plan that could tackle all the attacks.
Bangalore, Karnataka -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/18/2016 -- According to a report by The Times of India Tech, 7 out of 10 hacking attacks are done through web applications. Some key findings of the report states that 155 .gov and .nic domains were hacked in 2014. 58% of these attacks were for financial gains and the rest 42% were by foreign governments to acquire confidential information. In 2015, 185 million mobile users were accessing the internet from a highly vulnerable platform. 91% of the newly designed websites had SQL injection vulnerability and 97% were prone to cross scripting attacks.
The attacks are becoming frequent because the workforce of several companies is not trained to tackle advanced security breaches. Busy schedules or training centres at distant locations are some of the reasons for individuals not being able to stay updated. To solve this problem of workforce, Hack2Secure is opening up a new centre in Bangalore.
