As economies shift to digital and online models, cybersecurity threats can quickly outpace traditional approaches to data security, said MyDIGITAL Corp chief executive officer (CEO) Fabian Bigar. To counter this, he said governments and organisations should seek to be proactive in creating and adapting systems to face these cyber threats. “The global direct monetary losses to cybercrime in 2020 were estimated to have nearly doubled to US$945 million (US$1=RM4.22) from US$522 million in 2018. “The full economic costs of cybercrime including direct, indirect and upstream systems in 2020 have been estimated to be around US$4 trillion, about 4% of the global gross domestic product (GDP),” he said in his opening keynote address at the “Cybersecurity and Trust” webinar on Thursday (April 7).
