The global tech market is booming, with India’s IT and business services market poised to reach $19.93 billion by 2025. This growth fuels innovation but also presents challenges for diverse businesses. A recent PwC’s findings reveal that 43% of Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) identify digital privacy, cybersecurity, and compliance as their most pressing tech concerns. In an era where data security is paramount, organisations must navigate these challenges adeptly to harness the full potential of their technological investments.
