Cybersecurity now and in the future

Success Problem

Current time of home office and online meetings together with fast development of IT and AI technologies brings new perspectives to cybersecurity. Recent global events have upended our lives and serve as the foundations for better understanding information security of today and future. How can we ensure our data and processes will remain safe?

Impact

Our digital world will require a larger workforce of skilled information security professionals. Services and data are becoming increasingly cloud-based rather than campus-based. Believable disinformation and weaponized social media becomes more commonplace on the global social stages and we lag behind in capabilities for understanding and preparing for the security implications of these activities.

Recommendation

Security professionals may need to begin planning now for specific technology solutions and practices, to be better positioned for success in the future. Education in IT security and the adoption of safety practices that bring a high increase in cybersecurity should be accepted by all those involved in the company. Such basic practices include cloud vendor managment, multifactor authentication and preserving data authenticity/ integrity, staff data privacy and governance. Cloud-based endpoint protection platform solutions will become far more desirable and essential for managing the security, enabling remote monitoring of network and device activity.
