AIS Business has launched Cyber Security Operation Center with the aim of protecting Thai businesses and organisations from cyberattack while they Work From Home (WFH).
“Today, cyberattacks and cyber threats happen all the time among corporate groups and businesses that are the central targets, especially in unusual situations like the COVID-19 virus outbreak, in which every organisation adapts for employees to Work From Home,” observes Yongsit Rojsrikul, Chief Enterprise Business Officer, AIS.
According to the lastest survey, global cybercrime increased by 37% in March 2020 compared to February 2020, as the number of organisations and businesses practicing work from home rose 127%.
“Cybercrime is forecast to grow worldwide and generate a loss of over $6 trillion by 2021,” Yongsit continued. According to Cybersecurity Ventures, cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015.
Against this background, the Thai government announced The Cybersecurity Act, B.E. 2562 (2019) and the Personal Data Protection Act, B.E. 2562 (2019) for related organisations, especially those in the Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) groups, comprising security and government services, financial, information technology and telecommunications, transportation and logistics, energy and public utilities, and public health.
“All this throws the focus on providing cybersecurity and information security as the essential foundation driving the digital economy of the country.”
“Accordingly, as the leader in comprehensive ICT services for organisations, AIS Business has a sense of caring and concern about the cyber situation. Therefore, we developed innovative Cyber Secure solutions and services to assure cybersecurity for corporate and other customers.
