In 2023 Bangladesh witnessed nearly 3 million local threats targeting local organizations. This is according to the latest data from the global cybersecurity company, Kaspersky.

Business solutions from Kaspersky blocked a total of 2,900,000 local infections during the period of January to December last year. Statistics on local infections of user computers are an important indicator of the overall cyber threat landscape. They include objects that penetrated the target computer through infecting files or removable media or initially made their way onto the computer in non-open form (for example, programs in complex installers, encrypted files, etc.). 

These statistics are produced by Kaspersky security solutions scans of files on the hard drive at the moment they were created or accessed, as well as the results of scanning removable storage media.

“Bangladesh has utilised manufacturing to transform its economy and remains to be an important contributor to the global manufacturing industry. To be able to continue these feats, organisations, whether operating on IT or OT systems, should build their cyber defences against sophisticated attacks that use the same old techniques and tactics,” comments Adrian Hia, Managing Director for Asia Pacific at Kaspersky. Protection against local attacks not only requires a security solution capable of treating infected objects but also a firewall, anti-rootkit functionality and control over removable devices.

By scanning systems with robust security solutions, organizations can prevent the spread of malware through files or removable media. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business allows organisations to scan removable drives that are connected to a user’s computer for malware.

Kaspersky also offers an integrated software solution that includes a set of functions for event monitoring and management, the Kaspersky Unified Monitoring and Analysis Platform (KUMA).

A unified console for monitoring and analysing information security incidents, KUMA can be used as a log management system and as a full-fledged SIEM system.
