Spending on computer security in Thailand is expected to resume double-digit growth this year, fuelled by the growing sophistication of malware threats and development of the digital economy and the national e-payment system, says a security software firm. 

"We saw companies bulking up their cybersecurity spending in the past six months in Thailand, especially the banking sector," said Piyatida Tantrakul, country manager of Trend Micro (Thailand), the local operating unit of the Tokyo-based security software company.
