It’s no secret that the world is moving in a digital direction, from cloud-based infrastructure services to integrated business applications. The wealth of business information available on remote servers is enough to entice many cybercriminals to expand their activities, creating robust ransomware attacks and attempting to infiltrate your company’s sensitive customer, financial or health-related data. Small to mid-size businesses are expanding rapidly, often looking to IT services providers to provide additional technical support and enterprise-scale cybersecurity tools. With all of the shifts in the cybersecurity industry, these are a few of the most important considerations for 2020 and beyond.
Machine Learning and Automation in Security Services
Very few organizations could afford to have a team of security analysts scanning their network in real-time in an attempt to discover any unusual trends. With the rise of machine learning and automation in security, these services are becoming more mainstream and valuable for companies. Software solutions can now continually review network activity, looking for trends that have been defined as potentially dangerous or unusual. This information is then quickly relayed to individuals for immediate review and action, helping provide an added layer of security for your business systems and data.
Privacy and Compliance Regulations Open Vulnerabilities
Data privacy is a growing topic, with Europe’s GDPR and California’s approach to data privacy leading the way in terms of change. Compliance requirements for data privacy as well as the security of your business systems are hot topics in cybersecurity. These strict requirements are causing companies to retool the way they store and access data, providing consumers with unprecedented access to their information. This expansion of access can cause some unexpected cybersecurity challenges, too — as hackers take advantage of password reset emails and other phishing tactics to gain unauthorized access to accounts.
The Dearth of Cybersecurity Talent Hits Companies Hard
Companies of all sizes are scrambling to gain access to advanced cybersecurity talent, and finding it next to impossible to staff their security teams. There are serious shortages of trained, qualified individuals to work in the cybersecurity positions that companies are posting, creating a vacuum of talent in this important sector. Without access to this cybersecurity skillset, companies are becoming more vulnerable to attack and falling victim to the thousands of ransomware variants that are floating around.
