As innovation bursts into every area of our day to day lives, cyber-security is proving to be the glue that can facilitate the good & disable the bad for executing cutting-edge innovation along with reducing risks from previously prominent vulnerabilities as well.
So, are you wondering like what are the chief threats for the coming year? What solutions will be most significant? What information breaches or ransomware attacks or other various threats will trigger the most harm?
Well, let us give you more details on this! There are so many ways that you and your company can benefit from by studying these predictions and implementing the following recommendations.
Open Source Security Grasps Hold
The security sector has left behind the rest of the tech-industry when open-source is taken into consideration. We at Stratign predict that it will change drastically, and the year 2020 will be the one where security embraces open source with open arms. Back in those days, back, a couple of bold moves were seen by security heavyweights, this year that indicative change is afoot. Yes! This includes the ‘Google and friends’ introducing a new open source project, called OpenTitan, that confronts silicon root of trust (RoT).
Pushing to the Edge
Security needs to be present anywhere & everywhere. It’s required to be distributed, and be in proximity with cloud services, end users, and various other billions of devices that are spread all around the world to make high-bandwidth & low-latency connections feasible. Else, there will be a tradeoff betwixt performance and security.
Considering all of this, it indeed makes sense that some innovative vendors are utilizing top edge infrastructure to support & upkeep their security platforms & services. We witnessed some security vendors asserting towards the edge this year which includes Netskope with its NewEdge infrastructure along with Forcepoint’s Web Security platform too.
Ai to Speed Security Response …and Attacks
Humans can just not keep up with the profusion of emerging threats amidst multiple clouds, workloads & devices. As rightly quoted by Check Point in a blog post about its 2020 cybersecurity predictions, artificial intelligence (AI) has the ability to accelerate the identification of & response to threats, but what’s more? Cyber-criminals are as well beginning to take leverage of the same techniques to aid them investigate networks, discover vulnerabilities & develop the ever-more evasive malware.
5G Security Finally Gets Real
As major 5G network operations roll-out in 2020, 5G security will definitively take the center stage & these intricate networks pop up new attack vectors & need organizations to secure a big bunch of network assets. Basically, the infrastructure needed to roll out & manage the latest 5G networks required a more complex, software-defined architecture than older communication networks. With this new architecture, services will function within a more complex environment with a stronger & broader attack surface that needs more security diligence when it comes to the service providers.”
All-in-all, we at Stratign believe, that effective cyber-preparedness is about more than technology as it strongly requires the right processes and people to protect data from several attacks & unauthorized access.
