According to a report by UK-based data security firm, 72 out of the 100 major startups it analysed were "negligent" in implementing and maintaining reasonable security practices and procedures.
While the report did not name the companies, it said these were across segments like eCommerce (30), classifieds (14), finance and fin-tech (7), healthcare (7), food-tech (5) and hyperlocal services (3).
With growing Internet penetration and data packs becoming more affordable, consumer-focussed startups have seen business booming. Be it ordering food or furniture online or paying bills, consumers today are much more comfortable making purchases on the web and sharing details like email Ids, address and phone numbers.
