Unfortunately, it’s a perfect milieu for cyber attackers to thrive. While the exponential growth of the internet and cloud and IT industry became a silver lining to the pandemic, the cyber

attackers unleashed themselves on this opportunity, and the consequences were catastrophic. According to US-based cyber security firm Norton, India witnessed over 18 million cyberattacks and threats, with an average of nearly 200,000 threats every day, in the first three months of 2022.

On the other hand, the global situation paints a similar picture. In the US, the FBI recently reported a whopping 400 percent increase in cyberattacks from what they saw pre-coronavirus.
