Commenting on this certification, Sachin Bhatia, Co-founder, and Global Sales & Marketing says,” While COVID-19 has accelerated the pace of digital transformation, it has also given rise to digital payment frauds. Apart from the direct costs of a data breach, there are indirect costs associated with it in the form of a damaged reputation and customer churn.
