Latest Trends in Cybersecurity to FollowAs the cyber security trends are emerging, the companies must apply a proactive IT security posture instead of reactive to keep business secure. 

FREMONT, CA: Technology is rapidly advancing and transforming the way businesses operate. Cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are all emerging technologies that are giving companies unparalleled opportunities to discover new value. This value, however, is not guaranteed. Organizations must navigate a changing cyber threat landscape as technology advances. It is estimated that by 2020, the global cyber threat would have slowed the pace of technological innovation by USD 3 trillion in lost economic value.

The most pressing ongoing cyber security issues are a scarcity of qualified security staff, complicated compliance requirements, constant cyber attacks, and harmful insider threats.

In 2020, however, the biggest challenge for global security organizations will be navigating the corona virus pandemic. It's no secret that data breaches increased in volume and complexity in 2020, with the number of breaches up 273 percent in the first quarter compared to the same period in 2019.

Here are some essential cyber security trends that security teams must be aware of as they prepare to adapt to a new normal in 2021 and beyond:

Cloud Threats

Cloud adoption has developed as an ally for businesses to ensure business continuity because remote work and online collaboration became more prevalent during the corona virus pandemic. Even though global companies had been shifting to the cloud before the crisis, the pandemic accelerated the process.

Misconfigured cloud storage, decreased visibility and control, incomplete data deletion, and vulnerable cloud-apps are all examples of cloud-based security threats that will continue to disrupt businesses in the future.

AI Integration

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help under-resourced security teams stay ahead of the threats because cyber attacks are becoming more intense and frequent.

AI offers threat intelligence by analyzing vast amounts of risk data from organized and unstructured resources, decreasing the time it takes for the security team to make crucial decisions and respond to the threat.

Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

Security teams are under pressure to achieve visibility of business and customer data through emails, endpoints, networks, servers, cloud workloads, and applications resulting from increasing data breaches. Extended Detection and Response (XDR) is expected to gain traction as it can gather data from various endpoints and correlate it to speed up threat detection and incident response.
