If we think about cybersecurity keeping in mind the vision of "Digital Bangladesh" then it becomes a burning question. The surge in cybercrime toppled all previous records at the time of the pandemic. Why? Despite most of the businesses saw a downside in this pandemic, the expansion in the utilization of digital platforms took a 100 miles sprint on its own keeping other businesses behind. On the other hand, this phenomenon incited the criminal world to expand its share, resulting in exploiting thousands of businesses and millions of peoples' lack of knowledge in cyberspace.
TechForing is one of the frontrunners in this sprint. Being a multinational company and having regional offices in the USA, UK, and Turkey, they have served cybersecurity services to 1400+ clients all over the world. IBM, Google Cloud, Kuveyt Turk bank, are some of the notable clients among them. In recent years, they are also highly concentrating in south Asian markets like Bangladesh. TechForing mostly operated in a foreign land so when we asked the CEO and Managing Director of TechForing, Rabiul Islam, also a seasoned cybersecurity professional and data scientist,
How do TechForing plan to help the business community in Bangladesh? "TechForing is helping Enterprises, SMBs, and Individuals when it comes to cybersecurity-related challenges at any level in the west. We are currently zeroing in on Bangladesh to help businesses venture up in cybersecurity and assisting people to become mindful, furnished with the fundamentals expected to battle cybercrimes in 2021, and delivering a cyber-safe environment for the society. Moreover, in the west there are mandatory compliance policies for financial institutions and enterprises and TechForing has been helping these institutions to attain industry compliances like ISO 27001, PCI DSS, GDPR, HIPAA. TechForing wants to help Bangladeshi companies as well to develop security policies, and guide them to a secure environment along with meeting industry standard compliance requirements." he replied.
The business sector confronted 575 data breaches in 2018 worldwide and the number rose to 644 in 2019. The ITRC (Identity Theft Resource Center) noticed that while the business sector was single-handedly responsible for 44% of total breaches in 2019. The healthcare/medical care industry positioned second in 2019 for the number of data breaches, with 525, exposing 39.4 million sensitive records. The education sector positioned third exposing 2.3 million sensitive records from 113 data breaches. The number of breaches in the banking/credit/financial sector was not less than 108 making it ranked fourth in comparison to others but this breach alone exposed 100.6 million sensitive records which is 61% of the total sensitive data breaches globally.
Throughout the course of time, cybercriminals and their strategies have arisen in such a design that a moment of imprudence in your security framework can result in cascading disaster. Recently Bangladesh has firsthand experienced the real threat of international cybercriminals who threatened the country's financial institutions mostly the banks who were forced to suspend their transaction through ATM booths as precautions to prevent cyberattacks. Though Bangladesh is still exploring cyberspace gradually, the threat is imminent. The CEO of TechForing said, "To battle against cybercriminals, an organization must know their weaknesses before an outsider does. TechForing is assisting organizations with evaluating their risks through Vulnerability Assessment, Red Hat Penetration Testing that gives organizations a thorough outline of their current security status regarding the online wellbeing of their digital resources. Simply relying upon framework based security can't save you from cyber attacks any longer. More than 77% of organizations do not have an incident response plan. So, we help businesses when an episode like hacking, ransomware attack happens by performing Hack Recovery, Malware Removal, Crime & Digital Forensic Investigation as a part of our Incident Response services."
TechForing is also a product partner with the pioneers like IBM, Google, Fortinet, Microsoft, AWS, and so forth. Large organizations can take advantage of TechForing's wide range of cloud security, SIEM, and vulnerability assessment products. However, most small-medium businesses have budget constraints, that's why TechForing is providing their in-house crafted Managed Security Solution, and Plug & Play Program to help organizations stand out in case of any cyberattacks which don't require too much effort or cost like enterprise security solutions. In the developing nations, SMBs are not cautious enough with respect to their cyber protection, they are simply apathetic regarding the cyber threats and are on the verge of exploitation. These SMBs can really put a fight against cyberthreats with these crafted services and solutions.
Here are some facts, 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error and 68% of business leaders feel their cybersecurity risks are increasing. Most alarmingly on average, only 5% of companies' folders(Varoins) are properly protected. So, to effectively fight against cybercriminals and safeguard your business a cyber skilled workforce is second to none. TechForing helps corporates to prepare the representatives of an organization and the IT department or general employees with the industry best practices to escape the human blunders-- responsible for the majority of the data breaches of businesses. Already TechForing helped many foreign companies and various national and international law enforcement agencies to expand their horizon of information and mastery in cybersecurity.
