Pandemic, cyber attack & data fraud remains top concern for Companies: Study

Kolkata, Dec 5 (UNI) The continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, or a new public health crisis, emerged as the top risk concerns for Indian companies, according to a joint study conducted by Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk adviser, and RIMS, the risk management society.
Results from the Excellence in Risk Management India 2020, Spotlight on Resilience: Risk Management During COVID-19 survey also show that large scale cyber-attacks and data frauds remain one of the top-three risk concerns for the Indian corporate sector. While there is great optimism about the ability of organisations to rebound and address future pandemic-related challenges, cyber-attacks and data fraud continue to be paramount concerns for risk professionals in India.
According to the report, around 63% of the 231 survey respondents – which included c-suite executives and senior risk professionals – identified a new pandemic or continued fallout of COVID-19 among the top three risks facing their organisation. Cyber attacks (56%), data fraud or theft (36%), failure of critical infrastructure (33%), fiscal crises (31%), and extreme weather events (25%), were highlighted among the other top risks for Indian businesses. The majority of survey respondents (85%) said the pandemic necessitated a shift to remote work, a move that has increased their organisations’ exposure to a potential cyber-attack.
