More than 60% of Singapore-listed companies score well on cyber security: Study

 

SINGAPORE – Singapore-listed firms scored well in a private study of companies from 11 markets.

The study by cyber intelligence company Kinkayo found that more than 60 per cent of companies here have little or no cyber exposure, compared to the global average of 40 per cent. Exposure refers to signs of sensitive disclosure, exposed credentials and hacker group activity against a company as gleaned from publicly available sources, such as the dark and deep Web, and from data breaches.

Kinkayo was debuting what it called the world’s first Cyber Exposure Index (CEI) – a proprietary global scoring system that evaluates listed companies, based on the number of findings and risk classifications.
