India has witnessed a surge in digital consumption and technology-led innovation over the past decade. Internet penetration in India has nearly doubled from around 28% in 2016 to 49% in 2022. Average data consumption rose exponentially from 1.24 GB per month in 2018 to 19.5GB in 2022. This growth is fuelled by low data tariffs as well as smartphones becoming cheaper and more accessible. However, as the digital possibility grows, individuals also become more prone to cyber threats and vulnerabilities.
