Obvious to the new players in the market, Murtuja says, “My only advice would be that with the growing cybersecurity threats in the world, the target for adequate security compliance with a proactive approach towards cybersecurity. Good cybersecurity practice and assurance could be one of the key USP for your product and service offerings.”
