Increased IT security spending in a data-driven era Data breaches are the new reality as businesses embrace new environments such as cloud, Big Data, IoT and blockchain. According to Thales Data Threat Report 2018, a striking 93% of Indian respondents plan on increasing IT security spending this year, the highest among all countries surveyed and well above the global average (78%). This year\u2019s findings demonstrate a mix of good and bad news for Indian organisations in adopting security strategies to prevent the breach of sensitive data at their workplaces. According to the report, digital transformation across the globe has led to the growth of new business models that are focused on driving growth and profitability for organisations including cloud, IoT, Big Data and blockchain.
