“The more things change, the more they stay the same” means that despite apparent changes or advancements, certain fundamental aspects or patterns remain unchanged over time. One could relate this to cybersecurity.
- Cyberattacks cost thousands, if not millions, of dollars to impacted organizations.
- Cybersecurity is a critical element of homeland security after 9-11.
- Ransomware and phishing have always been pervasive.
- Since on-premise storage still exists for some businesses, despite the rise of cloud computing, monitoring and protecting data will remain an important part of any security execution plan.
Gartner reports that 85% of organizations will embrace a cloud-first principle by 2025 and will not be able to fully execute their digital strategies without the use of cloud-native architectures and technologies. (May 2023)
Three Key Cybersecurity Focal Points that Will Remain the Same for Foreseable Future
Rise in Cybersecurity Regulations:
Governments and regulatory bodies were expected to enhance and introduce new cybersecurity regulations to address the evolving threat landscape and protect sensitive data.
Focus on Cloud Security:
With the increasing adoption of cloud services, there was a growing emphasis on securing cloud environments. This includes implementing robust identity and access management, encryption, and monitoring.
Enhanced Endpoint Security:
As remote work became more prevalent, securing endpoints (devices used by employees) gained importance. Endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions were expected to evolve.
This year, we will learn more about AI and machine learning techniques to improve response efficiency.
