Apart from this, it has also been said in the report that most cyber attacks are for money. Hackers steal data as well as now hackers steal more private data. And threaten to make it public, and demand money. There are more cases where money is being extorted from people by blackmailing them.
Cyber attack on 31% companies daily
This report also claims that 31 percent of foreign and Indian companies are cyber-attacked every day in the year 2020. Especially due to the corona epidemic, more companies have provided work from home to their employees, making the work of hackers easier.

Also, many big and effective steps should be taken regarding data security.
