Should business priority be focused on cyber security or safeguarding sensitive data?

Asia is a prime target for cyber criminals due to lack of awareness of cyber threats, use of outdated or unlicensed technology, data breach or lack of disclosure regulation.

  • Should there be more investment spending on beefing up cyber security and protecting data privacy despite unquantifiable ROI?
  • Should big data be used to minimise cyber risks?
