It is critical for organizations, particularly tech leaders, to keep up with cybersecurity news and upgrade their data protection systems on a regular basis. Even if it’s merely a possible threat, keeping pace with the evolutions in cybersecurity can help firms prepare and secure their data and that of their customers.
Cybersecurity has always been a never-ending battle, but change is speeding up. Businesses continue investing in technology to run their operations. They are now stacking more technologies into their IT networks to facilitate remote work, improve the customer experience, and generate profit, all of which expose them to new risks.
With the advancement of remote work and e-commerce, encryption and cybersecurity, which have always been hot-button tech concerns, have become even more so. In these areas, tools and best practices are continuously improving to help enterprises and individuals protect themselves from the next major data breach.
Here are some recent advancements in industrial and business cybersecurity that every company’s leadership team should be aware of, as well as why they are so critical.
Insider threats are becoming more prevalent
Robust insider threat programs help in first level security threats, for which financial gain is the most common motivation. Violation of confidentiality and unlawful sale of IP is possible, specially from a frustrated employee, who can try to sabotage the company.
Privacy as a service
Companies were already dealing with email phishing, and the shift to remote work has opened up a slew of unique ways for personnel to be targeted. Without the necessary internal security skills, firms are investing extensively in approaches such as confidential computing and polymorphic encryption. As a result, in 2022, encryption and privacy as a service will be significant developments.
Security strategy for the long term
Any commercial company or government agency relies on trust and data privacy. Having the proper encryption or cybersecurity technology medium is just a component of the solution. Implementing and executing the correct security measures, developing rules and procedures, continuing governance, and clarity on long-term roadmaps and plans are all critical.
Data sovereignty and data localization
It’s a never-ending race to stay on top of the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape. Data localization and data sovereignty are two critical issues that have not been adequately addressed. Enterprises and leaders must be able to guarantee that their data is not decrypted beyond well-defined policy zones. Good data controls around when and where data is decrypted will be required to supplement security features.
The ever-increasing regulatory landscape, and persistent deficits in resources, expertise, and people, will outstrip cybersecurity
Many companies are short on cybersecurity talents, knowledge, and expertise, and the crisis is becoming more alarming. In general, cyber risk management has lagged behind the rapid growth of digital and analytics changes, and many businesses are unsure how to detect and manage digital threats. To make matters worse, authorities are tightening their grip on corporate cybersecurity capabilities, applying the same level of scrutiny and focus to credit and liquidity risks in financial services as well as operational and physical security concerns in critical infrastructure.
More control over data access
Companies are adjusting their cybersecurity strategies in the post-perimeter era to focus on protecting people and data, as well as the link between them—in other words, who has access to what data. Controlling who has access to encrypted resources, irrespective of whether they are human or machine identities, will be crucial, particularly in the cloud.
