Today the South Asia region is a destination for endless technology opportunities for enterprises. However with the growth of the digital economy, threats to public and private technology infrastructure is the biggest concern for enterprise leaders.
1) Nuclear power facilities in South Asia have been a concern of late with cyber attacks on administrative facilities of such critical infrastructure. There have also been growing attacks on government and military organizations as well.
2) As one of the most vibrant regions of the world, South Asia, actively participates in the world’s cyber politics, as both perpetrator and victim of cyber security challenges. However, the South Asian cyber security scenario is dominated not only by the activities of both India and Pakistan but also by the rest of the South Asian countries: Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Maldives.

There is a growing trend in the threat landscape to the cyber security of the region.
