Yeo Siang Tiong stories

Yeo Siang Tiong, an author with a keen eye on cybersecurity, vigilantly reports on the increasing threats that loom over businesses in Southeast Asia. With a particular focus on ransomware, Yeo provides insights into how executives perceive these attacks and the rising incidence of such assaults on enterprises, underscoring a somewhat worrying complacency amongst some that their business is too insignificant to be a target.

Yeo's coverage extends to the broader digital threat landscape in regions like Singapore, where he documents an alarming surge in web threats, revealing the sheer volume of hazardous incidents internet users face. Through his writings, he sheds light on the pervasiveness of these challenges and their potential impacts on businesses and individuals alike.

Furthermore, Yeo delves into the specific plight of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), elucidating the burgeoning threat of cryptomining malware as well as devising strategies to fend off cybercriminals. His expertise also traverses the realm of eCommerce, illustrating the troubling trend of phishing scams that prey upon financial transactions online, thereby posing severe risks to consumer trust and business integrity.

Even as he acknowledges the decline in mobile malware, Yeo Siang Tiong accentuates the sophisticated tactics hackers now employ, ensuring readers remain aware of the evolving nature of cyber threats. His reportage on Kaspersky's commercial success also offers a lens into the growing recognition and demand for robust enterprise security solutions throughout Southeast Asia.
