As soon as you shop online in India, the hackers stand right behind them.

With the increasing number of Indians online and unheard of information, hackers turned their attention to countries with more than 450 million smartphone users and over 550 million internet users.

This country has 366 million internet members in urban areas and 194 million in rural areas. A recent report by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said

John Shier, Senior Security Advisor, Sophos, various organizations are struggling with phishing and other user-focused attacks in India.

"Maximum people do not trust that computer-based training (CBT) is effective and are looking for ways to improve the protection of users who are tricked into inviting malicious attackers into their networks," Shier said in a statement.

The KPMG report in April revealed that nearly 86% of consumers in India worry about eavesdropping conversations or stealing or misusing messages via their devices.

"Increasing the number of connected devices and IoT will affect various sectors of information security and privacy. In response to this, regulators must create the necessary information security requirements, "said Atul Gupta, IT consultant and cyber security leader, KPMG in India.

About 87 percent of consumers are concerned that retailers will misuse or misuse information.

According to Gauri Bajaj, Cyber ??Security Director (APAC), Tata Communications said that accepting cyber security is still a major challenge.

"Recent cyber attacks focus only on security risks that occur both inside and outside the organization. It is necessary that employees must be at risk of being violated and trained to respond to such situations, "Bajaj said.Not only phones, wearable devices such as smart watches are the front line of cyber security.

"The future of wearable technology in the AI ??world and predictive technology will be highly individualized, driven by data and intensive analysis. One of the bigger applications will remain in the health and fitness sector.

"However, the key to making this happen is to create a holistic ecosystem that tracks, guides, and designs individual plans for each person at a low cost," said Vishal Gondal, CEO and founder of GOQii.

It's not enough to have an IT security team and having a strong culture about security is the next step in developing a security awareness program, experts say.

"Use unique and complex passwords for banks and online accounts, other finances for others. Use a password manager to organize and be ready to use. Use two-factor authentication (2FA) when available to increase account security levels, "Shier said.

Beware of clicking emails from unknown sources or deals that are too good to be true.

Cyber ??criminals use similar-looking spam to trick victims with links to fake websites. Businesses should train employees about how to "see phish".
