How New Technologies are Impacting Enterprise Security

By CIOReview | Wednesday, January 6, 2021

The industries have to secure their network better as cybercriminals find new techniques due to emerging technologies.

FREMONT, CA: A company can agree that corporations are expected to speed up their implementation of emerging technologies in the changing technology environment. In turn, this generates a need to rapidly develop skills in these emerging innovations to keep pace with rivals. But bringing onboard experts for any new technology is not feasible for a business that needs to remain lean and agile, which is where outsourcing will play a key role. Bearing expenses and agility in mind, using a Managed Service Provider (MSP) before developing the internal team is the perfect solution.

According to the World Economic Forum, business leaders in advanced economies identify cyber-attacks as the global challenge, second only to fiscal crises. Industries have seen a disturbing increase in cyber-attack rates recently, especially during the period of the COVID-19 pandemic. With an ever-increasing number of cyber-attacks on corporations, this pattern will most likely continue.It is more concerning for corporations because cybercriminals are seeking new ways to exploit the security holes resulting from the introduction of new technology and work environments in addition to the established vulnerabilities and possible attacks.CYBER-ATTACKS ON CLOUD SERVICES

The rapid development in cloud computing adoption, particularly Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), has brought the public cloud to many business systems. It lowers the overhead expenses and decreases the time to market for the company's services. However, a vast volume of confidential data still finds its way to the cloud, along with business systems.

RISE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND MACHINE LEARNING

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have been identified as excellent instruments for malicious software mitigation and prevention. Machines are being trained to identify threats from human inputs as well as through trial and error. Not all applications of AI and ML, however, have been for humanity's benefit. The cyber-criminals noticed it, and the utilization of AI and ML has started to pose significant cybersecurity challenges. As defensive measures to evade these emerging developments, cyber-criminals turn to model stealing, adversarial inputs, and data poisoning. Criminals are still changing, as these innovations grow.
