Trends for Cybersecurity for 2018

 

The world of cybersecurity is changing drastically but there are some realities that security leaders demand. Part of it is to able to balance the risk, resilience, usability and price. Another is to have full command, access, and visibility on what is happening. Lastly, obtain more control only over what matters.

Reality is you cannot protect everything equally. Your goal should be focused on finding a way to secure your assets that matter the most. Security leaders should be aware that they cannot fix everything, part of this is you cannot make all your assets fully secured, not even have the power to know how secure they all are, and not know how secure your partners are.

Even though there are things that you cannot control, there are several security trends that can help you manage your organization with great confidence and ease. Let’s dive in.

Since the skills and organization for cybersecurity continue to change; the industry will continue to demand new kinds of skills as cybersecurity evolves in areas such as data classes and data governance. Security skill sets are scare. A problem that security leaders have to avoid. Reality is companies will generate more data than they ever have before in the next three to five years. So the solution is to start preparing now to avoid future problems.

These changes will require new types of skills in data science and analytics. The majority of this increase in information only means that security intelligence is absolutely pivotal. The next phase of cybersecurity requires adaptive skills.

Since cloud has dominated the market over the past years, cloud security will become a priority. Cloud is reaching its maturity. Over time, it is transforming into a security target which will lead to having security problems. Experts shared their thoughts that cloud might experience a tragedy, especially on shared cloud service. The reason behind is since the demand is getting bigger and bigger cloud service might get unstable and unsecure. The key is for security leaders to decide on which provider they want to trust and who they can’t. It is important to create security guidelines for private and public cloud to avoid risks.

We’ve heard this phrase before that prevention is better than cure. In the world of cybersecurity, your focus should be on that belief. It is important to spend your company assets on prevention and detection. Since you won’t be able to stop every threat, it is wiser to deflect them before they even come. This means adapting your security setup to focus on detection, response, and remediation. This is the existing battle in the cybersecurity space. Who knows in the future we can detect a threat before anything happens.

Experts can see an innovative opportunity in application security though most enterprises are not taking advantage of this because of the expense. However, it is time to discover the right way to assess the relevance of security and the best way to explain its significance to organizations. Experts are also pushing to change the dynamics of DevOps and transforming it to DevSecOps instead. They believe that this is the ideal time to merge the development and operations with security. Businesses should stop running these elements as isolated units. If an internal team is not available, then look for a service provider like Infoccentric Solutions Inc. to guide your organization and implement these necessary items.
